Default [REQUEST FOR HELP] Coding Help

Hello guys, I decided to get serious into learning Java today, and I need someone to help me understand everything about Java included coding, the different folders in the coding process. (Basically, all things Java.) I searched Google without any result. Thanks in advance.

P.S. I'm still in school, and I don't have much for time for Java, so I need someone (preferably) somewhere around my time zone (GMT+8) or night owl to adjust to my time. YouTube videos are welcome too.

P.S. I don't have a computer, so coding and research and everything happens on my Note 2.

Smack that Thanks button if I helped!

For a really basic start you could use something like ConTEXT: http://www.contexteditor.org/downloads/ . After installing a java sdk and adding the java/bin folder to your path (environment) variable you can set up Context to compile and run your opened java files.

I myself quickly switched to Eclipse: http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/pac...pers/keplersr1 . This has many more features like auto-complete/suggestions etc. If you want to create apps for the android dalvik platform you can download the ADT plugin for eclipse: http://developer.android.com/sdk/ins...lling-adt.html . From there you can download the android sdk and start using the android build platform.

For basic introduction to java and object oriented programming i found this for object oriented programming: http://www.ntu.edu.sg/home/ehchua/pr...OOPBasics.html . Basic java tutorials are easy to find with google anyways. I also looked at the courses i had in university but they are in dutch so probably not of use.

Just start working through tutorials and do fool around a bit to find out how some things work. Don't start to early on android sdk because i found the android system quite a challenge to grasp, took me about 2 weeks . I already had on that point quite a bit of experience with java.

Just read your second PS. I think it is hard to really learn java if you don't have a computer to use. I myself learned the most by just fooling around with code

Yep it is really hard. Thanks for that last link though.
