    Default Game Engine in Java, is it practical idea?

    Hi everyone,

    I have a project that ask to write a simple game engine using Java, a very very simple one. I just want to ask how can I start with this project? Any recommendation would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    It is very practical, coding a simple game is pretty easy in java. Look up Killer programming in java, it covers the basics, double buffering, the update draw render loop etc... all in all a very usefull resource.
    Ever seen a dog chase its tail? Now that's an infinite loop.

    Hi MoonChile,

    Thanks a lot for your quick response. However, I'm not talking about a simple game but a "game engine". In this project, I actually have to provide a set of APIs that can work like other Graphics Framework in java, for example, load a picture, display a picture... It will not be complex like others, but simple enough ( 2D Graphics is my initial plan ) to do those things.
    In C++, we have "graphics.h", and I can write a wrapper around Windows API to do those things. But I'm too new to Java, so to get started is such a problem for me. Do you have any other idea? Thank you.

    Thanks,
