    Default my first java project random words please help

    Hello..probably you will laugh when you will read my problem but i really am one novice in java..
    This is what i have to do:
    1)When launched, shows an input field to enter a sentence and a 'Process' button
    2)When 'Processed' button is pressed, the application shows the same sentence with the following modifications:
    The first and last letter of each word is kept the same.
    All other letters (if any) are randomly mixed
    3)The user can enter another sentence and start over
    i don't want to make you my project just explain where to read to do my project..

    Give it a try and come back with any problems. The string class has some helpful methods(substring and charAt perhaps)

    That will require some GUI components. The are plenty of small sample programs here.
    Search for JFrame or JTextField for some.

    Before you even make it GUI, you should get it working without it. Write your class scrambler and make it scramble the words. Then write a test class that uses a scanner input to send your custom text to the scrambler class. After that works, make your GUI.

    I suggest looking at the String API, especially the split method. This will make your life much easier.
