 Hello World!

I am new around here, and also new with Java. I have quite some experiences using other languages, but not for game developing!. I have started some weeks ago, learning the basics about Java, making some scripts, I made my first pong game and then I started to play around with graphics and Java 2D.

I want to do a 2D point and click adventure, and my first problem is precisely here: the point and click. I am able to paint my character over the background image, but when I click with the mouse in any other place it just repaint the character in the new position... I try to solve it using repaint inside a for loop (old obsessions from other languages...) changing the X and Y position in a vector that go from the initial position to the last position. But it is not working (it just stay for a moment in the old position and them appear on the new one). I guess I am doing something really stupid, and there is even more than one easy way to do this... can anybody help me? There is any trick or function to make the character move smoothly from the initial position to the position where I click with the mouse?

(I have search around the forum to don't repeat any topic unnecessarily, but I have not found anything. Anyway I am sorry if this was already explain before!)

thanks in advance!

[I hope the post is in the correct place...]
