back on topic...

I've started learning java recently, and I downloaded eclipse without even considering any other IDEs.
Works for me :D

My first Java book reccomended NetBeans so I've used it exclusively. I've thought about trying Eclipse but it's a (pretty) big download and I see no reason to have 2 IDEs.
Java is the best. :D

To be honest, I had some ideas for games/apps for android phones and they had that 'engine' which pretty much made them for you. It wasn't fun however and they canned the project, so I figured f*ck it, I'll do a proper android tutorial (which recommended Eclipse as there was an android emulation plugin).
I already know how to write in DataBasic (not an OOP, its from the 70s or something) so I figured it wouldn't be too hard to pick up...

Yeah... well that plan fell on it's face because it was all java based and I didnt know java or know how a OOP language worked for that matter.

So anyway, I'm about 700 pages into this java text book (looking forward to getting to the swing library bits)

Trucking on...

What type of apps are you eventually planning to write?  I might be able to direct you to some good Java tutorials to get your feet wet with whatever type of skills you are shooting for (2D, 3D, networking, etc)

Simple 2D games would be a nice start. I'm a big gamer and to make something of my own would be awesome. Even if no one plays/likes it, I'll be proud of myself!
Planning on keeping it easy to start with so I can get to grips. Any input would be awesome :D

Once you've made it through your book, I'd recommend working through Oracle's "The Java Tutorials"  Once you've gotten trough "Covering the Basics" and "Creating Graphical User Interfaces", you can pick out some of the "Specialized Trails and Lessons" that you find interesting (in particular, the tutorials in the "2D Graphics" trail should be very helpful to you).  Once you understand the tutorials and are comfortable writing your own 2D graphics applications in Oracle Java, it will be a lot easier to transition over and do it in Android (although the API is quite a bit different, so you'll want to work through some Android tutorials as well once you get to that point).
