Java Tutorials Request

Posted 18 September 2011 - 12:39 PM

Since the old Java Tutorials Request Thread had become overgrown, I've closed that thread and am starting a new tutorials request thread. If you have a tutorial you would like to see, post your request here! Make sure to check out my thread Getting Better at Programming Java and the Java Tutorials Section first, as a tutorial may already exist for your topic. If you know of a good tutorial for someone's request, please reply here with the link!

I'm trying to drag and drop an ImageIcon with an image from one JPanel to another, does anyone know of any example code that may help?

My Getting Better at Programming Java thread (linked above) links to two such tutorials on the Java DnD API. It should get you going on the right path.

Perhaps we can get an all in 1 GUI Layout tutorial. An extensive tutorial on the different layouts that you can use in GUI, the pros and cons over each other, some sample code of how to implement each layout with just some basics swing objects in them (JButtons, JLabels, JTextFields.. basics.) Situational suggestions on when you should use which layout, however that kind of feeds into the pros and cons. Also, the reason why not to use null layout and why the others are better to use.

I know that we have a couple tutorials out there on Layouts but none of them really compare one to the other, only describe what they are. There isn't one tutorial that will go into extensive detail about each one and the things I listed above.

Would just be a good place to start for people wanting to learn GUI. Will also be beneficial to say "Here is a link check it out" when someone posts a layout problem.

I personally still use Null layout simply because I have not found a good tutorial on all of the other layouts that is easy to comprehend and has good sample code. Yet I tell others not to use it :P

Just something I think would be beneficial all around. :)
Happy Coding!

I would like a good tutorial on the following:

  • Microphone capturing (basic)
  • Making sound effects by changing bytes (wav). Including a basic explanation of how a wav file is built up


Sample code would be a big plus. All in java of course

I think a tutorial about Java networking would be very helpful. Like how to write a program that speaks not only to the computers in your network but to other computers on the World Wide Web

I would love to see a tutorial about making a tile based grid for a 2d top-down or isometric game, and how to randomize that data to make a random map generator, similar to the way it's done in many popular roguelikes.

Thanks for your time!

I think a tutorial on bitwise operations '>>, <<, ^, |' etc... maybe also some discussion on how it can be used in an application as well as maybe a use for 'bitmasks' and other bit related stuff. I didn't really understand these things when reading the java tutorials.

You should be able to read it just fine. Even the bitwise symbols are the same.

Have you read the documentation?
http://docs.oracle.c.../opsummary.html

Also, there are two tutorials on looping in my Getting Better at Programming Java thread you can check out.
