Fiddle. Fiddle, fiddle, fiddle. Get yourself one of the good compilers
(gcc for C++; I don't know which is the best Java compiler), and set
yourself up an environment where you can make small edits to your code
and very quickly compile and run it. I like to use SciTE with a good
makefile; pressing F7 in SciTE will 'make' the current project and
show you the results immediately.

Also, find a good mailing list dedicated to C++, and one dedicated to
Java. Lurk there for a while and read tips, and when you run into
specific problems, ask clear questions.

Hope that helps!
