im new i have alot of questions that i will be asking in the future so bare with me i chose this forum because it was large, looks friendly, and seems as though many of you are knowledgeable i have this idea and didnt know where to start im not even shure if im posting this in the right section of the furoms (if i am then redirect me) ok i have this idea for a program and java seemed the obvious choice ive heard that it is easier to learn and more flexible than many other programming codes well for my idea for a program i was planning on making a program for speaker (subwoofer) enclosure design my idea have a 3d box on a 3d grid that allows you to stretch it then tell's you the volume of the enclosure (it will be alot more complicated than this in the end but i feel its the first place i need to start) i would like this program to include a text sheet below kinda half the graph n box, other half a wordpad like part in the bottom i want it to display the changing information from the top part ok im ranting now it gets more complicated than this but im sure it would be the first place to start what do you all think i should do (keep in mind i have never wrote java before) thanx for any info and thanx for even reading look forward to learning from and with you thanx - tony

Welcome Tony, I hope you do find this place friendly. We do try I'm not sure the Servlets Forum is the best place for your question so (for now) I'll move it to the Java in General (beginner) forum. Looking forward to hearing more questions though. Dave
