If you're new to Java you're a long way from making games. First read some tutorials about language itself. There's a good, free book from Bruce Eckel: Thinking in Java... you can download it in pdf.. google it. Also there are many tutorials on sun's pages. What get me going is divelog tutorial (learning about frames and other gui stuff).

Well, how long way from making games he is depends alot on any previous knowledge he has. If you're new to java, but know alot about object oriented programming, and have previously written games in for example C++, then it wont take long to start writing games in java.

But if you have little other programming knowledge, then yes you are a long way from writing games...
