Lukkin Fur Java Tutorials

Hey folks,

I've been programming in HTML (whoops - did I use "programming" and "HTML" synonymously?), JavaScript, VB and C++ for quite some time now, along with Perl and a few RPN languages.

I know a lot about JavaScript and its syntax already, and a lot of basic manipulative and detection tricks.

My question is -
Where can I find a few good sites (around 5 preferably) to show me how to code Java applets using graphics (both bitmaps and hard-coded, rendered sprites) such as moving 3D cubes, etc...

Do I need MSVJ++? I only have VC and VB on my machine - If this Java stuff works just by writing code in Notepad then I'm all for it.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Supermario...didcha find the Nukem code I wanted?

Anyhow.
Yeah you can write java code in just notepad,However it will help if you have a "good" editor like MSVJ++ cause that stuff comes bundled with stuff like smart edit...something you must be familiar from your days at VB.

Personally I don't like MSVJ++ but many people do and if you're into VC and VB I guess you can take advantage of using MSVJ++.
However, Notepad will do the job and some other apps like kawa or editplus
in combination with jdk can make the job a bit easier.
Using JDK:
->Gives you very good documentation
->Higher compatibility than msvj++



I work with java for about some time and I've only used these great docs:

Sun's Tutorial:
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/trailmap.html

API Documentation:
http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.0.2/api/

A good starting point:
C:\Program Files\jdk1.2\docs\api\index.html


Hummm, You want spinning cubes? Try the sun's Java 3D.
It's kind of an add-on to jdk so that you can work directly with open-gl.
It's very very easy to use...
