就 and its use.
I'm having troubles translating this sentence :
I can't figure out if this means "I'll do my homework as soon as I have finished eating" or "I'll eat as soon as I have finished my homework"!
If someone could explain the logic?

your 1st translation is good:
"I'll do my homework as soon as I have finished eating"
the 了 indicates a completed action...eating in this case, the jiu in this case means "and then right away [I'll]"..whatever follows, in this case do the homework.
