First off, im new to this forum so hello everyone! Iv only just started programming in java, but have done bits of HTML, and PHP before. Anyway...
I have been reading Java Programming from Problem analysis to program design, which is really good, but I have a few small problems. Firstlty, what is the scope of java? It seems to me that there is very little you can do with it, which is a shame as this is the basis for my MSc next year. I am very interested in programming games, or other programs with graphics in them, but bar the GUI components and Applets, how would I be able to create a program with non 'java like' graphics? What i mean by this is not the standard stuff that comes with java but something I could design myself?
Also I struggle a bit on the concepts of OOP and wondered if anyone has any good links which they could post to help me out?
Thanks in advance
