    Question How to start :O

    I am new to java programming and i wonder, how can i make java app or game if i don't know what classes will i need? I don't know what methods will my app take, what should i do? Are all apps and games have the same methods and classes, is there any scheme for programming ? My questions are stupid, but i am very confused right now...

    Your questions indicate you are very new to programming. You should not worry about any specific games or apps at this point. I recommend you get a good book and start learning the basics of Java. I have heard that "Head First Java" is pretty good. BTW, learning Java (or any other language) and learning programming are two entirely different things. Learning a language teaches you the syntax and other parts of the language. Learning programming is learning how to take the various capabilities of a language and use them to do accomplish some task. Programming well is something that can take years to master.

    They are not, they just need some more explaining. It is not a good idea to cram multiple questions into one post and it is not a good idea to ask single sentence questions - they lack context. You need to ask questions which allow the reader to envision what you are talking about. That requires detail information.

    Take your last question as an example. What is a "scheme" by your definition? Right now you're inviting everyone reading that to interpret that in any way they please.

    Well, by scheme i am thinking about some notes, steps, draws, anything that will help me to build some plan for making app. Sorry if that was not so clear. And are all apps and games have almost the same structure? I was watching some tutorials about 2d game development and every game had the same classes and almost same methods. That confused me a lot..Is there any essential methods for every app and game or it is different from programmer to programmer? Sorry for dumb questions, i am newbie, and a lot things confuses me. Salute
