Looking into Java
I'm already familiar with programming (from other programming languages) but I've done very little with Java. I did a little Java in College which we used to make a calculator, however I want to go further and so I've come up with a project to motivate myself.
What I'm looking to do is make a graphics manipulation program like MS Paint which will also have the same sort of simplicity.
So I'm stuck wondering what API's I'll need to use to accomplish this?
I'm also open to any advice or any problems that I should look out for.
Google is your friend.
You could start with the Graphics class and everything that touches it.
Looking into the Java 2D API right now but since I've got a lot to read through I just wanted to make sure I was on the right track, thanks.
