    Default differents steps??

    Hi everyone
    I am a bit new to Java. I have been reading about Java and have the idea of building an application. I think that using swing could be ideal but don t know if there is any other better alternative. Also I don t know the different steps in building the application (e.g the different classes and hw to relate them)
    Any help would be welcome. Tx

    I recommend Thinking In Java by Bruce Eckel, if you're financially strapped. Otherwise, I'd spend the dough and get Head First Java which is a fantastic book, to get you started. You need to take baby steps before you learn to jump!

    I think 'Core Java 2 Volume I - Fundamentals, Seventh Edition' is also a good book for you. I got a lot of benefit from that.

    Definately practice, alot. I learned the hard way that there is a huge disconnect between understanding it by reading it and then actually doing it. I tried reading a ton of chapters of bruce eckels book thinking i would just be able to go in and code like a fiend. After attempting my first program I realized I didn't really understand anything, and this was after already having taken a java programming class a year earlier ;).
