I'm pretty new to java but have the hang of the basics (SCJP qualified). I don't find the programming too difficult but at the end, my code is always a mess and therefore a maintenance nightmare. Can anyone suggest where i go in order to learn how to design my program before rushing headlong into the coding?

I understand that the Chicken Coop (off the main page) can provide good information on code style.

Head on over to The OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring Forum and ask lots of questions.

And buy or borrow (and read, of course) "Refactoring - Improving the design of existing code" by Martin Fowler!
