Most of the tutorials  are realy about how to use various parts of the
API, although the Java 3D stuff does talk about large  parts of engine
design.

However if you look though some tutorials on Servlets (Tomcat) it does
have some examples of how to do server side programming  for web
applications.

Making games  is such a huge broad subject you would be amazed. Unless
you are talking about a realy simplistic game  you are talking about 4
different programming fields (GUI/ClientSide, ServerSide, Middleware,
DataBase), if it is a networked game you can add networking fields as well.

So if you want to become a leet game developer I would recommend
learning everything you can about programming.

> And what tools  i need to start  with and what's size  they have?

To start programming games? I would recommend going though the
tutorials. After you have mastered every tutorial, go get some books
which have a titles along the lines of "Design Patterns in Java" and
have a read.

Are you talking about something like a Massivly Multiplayer game?

Huh? what's GUI and Middleware?
Well, yeah, networking was the main idea and easiest... i hope.

Yes, i have heard a lot about this thing,
but where can i download things  to read,
study, practise and learn?

What tutorials? About what?

Uh... what "massivly" multiplayer game?

Java based games are in first plan and then
later other programming games, i think.
Remember that also website programming was in plan, 3D too.

Ouch, my front-finger of left hand hurts, stupid old keyboard...
have to almost strike the control button with full strength
to make big letters!

I don't know too many places that just teach you to be a game  developer.
I tried to point out that being a game developer requires such a huge
cross-section of skills that just learning the basics of pramming is the
best start. After you can do GUI/Client side, Middleware, Networking,
Serverside you will know the basics of how to write decent games.

> Huh? what's GUI and Middleware?

GUI = Graphic User Interface.
Middleware, applications that are not Directly a Server application or a
ClientSide application. Often are client side with no GUI for input.

Networking isn't the easiest by a long shot. Well it isn't that hard if
you are only doing basic things, although it requires a fundemental
skill level of everything before it, such as a good understanding of
Object Oriented Programming.


> Yes, i have heard a lot about this thing,

Any basic tutorals. I would work though the basic java  tutorials, and
then as you develop you will just know when you are good enough to write
games.

> What tutorials? About what?

Design Patterns in Java is learning how to write realy good fundemental
code.

That was just a question that I got from reading what you posted.

Website programming assuming you just mean dynamic webpage development
is probably the better place to start. However even that can be full on
and hard.

3D programming is realy hard. Actualy scratch that, 3D programming
requires you to bend your brain, it is realy hard at first. There is a
reason why there are not to many 3D engine coders around.

My recomendation to you (and any other budding game developer out there)
is just to learn the basic art of crafting code. If you are not a
fantastic coder in every way shape and form then you will not be a
fantastic game coder either.

If you want to learn in java, my recomendation is do the tutorial as it
is on java.sun.com and then when you get to AWT/Swing (the GUI parts of
Java) make your own lessons to form kind of games (make events for key
presses and move a elipse around the screen).

The java  Tutorial? Hey, i've been there.

That some kind of program?
Where i get it and how much memory it takes?

Hmmm, i gotta go check it out! Anyway, could nice to play Multiplayer on web

Oh, and there's one i visit almost every weekday... a FLASH multiplayer game

Basic Text editor is like Notepad. Use it before you use a IDE (if you
don't know don't bother ... yet :) )

The Java SDK stands for the Java Software Development Kit and is
something you need to be able to create Java programs. Without this
package you can't code anything (hence you can't learn)

 
Answer #6    Answered By: Eileen Carr     Answered On: Jul 07

Well, i was not sure did the computer sent my previous message but...
Did i got it right...
I need The Java SDK, which version, link to this and it's size?
And the rest i need is tutorials.

 
Answer #7    Answered By: Phoebe Brown     Answered On: Jul 07

you can download  it from www.java.sun.com both the sdk & also the
tutorials

 
Answer #8    Answered By: Latoya Murray     Answered On: Jul 07

So all i need is Tutorial and The Java SDK?
There are many version aren't there?
Can you give  me a link to the best you'd use?

I started out with the very basics, which was the HelloWorld stuff and
then slowly migrated up to operators, loops and arrays. Eventualy I
moved on to DataStructures ... now I kinda read what I need to do
forwhat ever kind of project I am working on.
