Hi all, I am new to this field of game programming but not new to Java at all. I have more than 3 years of development experience in java and other related technologies. As far as gui is concerned, i use swing components extensively. Its an amazing idea to go in game development with java.

My Question is:   Huh   Is there some special type of framework available for game app. development in java ?? Or as a new-bee what is the correct place to start game programming in java and related technologies.

hope to listen some expert voices.
cheers.

What sort of games do you want to make?

I always recommend using LWJGL if you want to write games in Java. I would do, though, because I had a hand in making it.

thanks for ur suggestion. I want to start with a game which has some rich animation. I guess that you would have experience Mario Brothers in its early stage. I want to have something like that (not exactly) but a cartoon like funny structure which runs along some lush-green pathway... and collect valuable things.... it will be a start then i will extend it further on. I hope you got my point !!!   Cool

I'd start with Pong if I were you. Nearly everything you need to learn about developing games is enshrined in a complete Pong.

Then move on to Pac-man.

And then try the Mario-style game.
