Thanks nonnus! Those tutorials have been a really good start before I get the book. It seems like they're for Java 1.1 though, as some things on it are deprecated, such as size(), which is now getSize(). Everything else seems to work so far. Thanks a lot!

Thanks for all the input so far. I've bought a book online and will wait for it to get here.

For now I'm shooting for learning the language syntax, etc., which will probably be done through something other than applets (a "regular" application), and then I'll move into applets to work on the simulations and simple games I have in mind.

Once done with these, I might go deep into applications (non-applets), but for now I believe the applets will suffice, as I believe its security limits aren't going to be an issue while developing my projects.

Once again, thanks! If anyone has anything else to add, please feel free to do so.
3  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / New to Java on: 2004-01-30 17:46:13
I've always been interested on learning Java -- Applets in particular -- so that I could write my own simulations/games in such a way that they're widely distributed. I've programmed using VB (including some single-player gaming, but stopped because I hated VB language), C++ (never got graphical on it), DHTML (errr... if you can call HTML/JS/CSS a "programming language"), and some server-side Web dev. stuff (CGI, ASP, CFM, PHP).

Just today I have finally downloaded and installed the SDK, etc., and wrote my first "Hello World" application and applet. I have a decent background on programming, game programming, including lots of game physics, yet I lack the basic Java knowledge. I thought of getting a book on it, but am not sure which way to go, since my focus is, at least at first, Applet/Games.

Any suggestions? -- This could be books, websites, etc., or any thoughts in general on how I should approach the "next step". Thanks in advance. Wink
