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.

Check this link!

Thanks, but the vids on the page aren't all that mobile friendly, and I'm not buying any books. I'm trying to make my learning process as inexpensive as possible.

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.
