Hello guys,
I am planning to make a simple Alienshooter game in java applets. Can you guys guide me how to make it. I am not new to programming world.
I just need you to help me out with resources from where I can learn java gaming and how to play flash and sound files in java applets.
Looking forward for your help.

"Play flash" - you mean as in "Adobe Flash"? That's not going to happen.

You can play sound using the javax.sound API.

For a very simple example applet game to get you started: Tetris

"Play flash" means I want to import swf files in java applets. Is it possible??
Secondly, are there any 3rd party software tools to help me build games in java??

SWF: Not in the general sense. You can use the JMF library to play Flash 2 files, but I think that's from about 10 years ago - not sure it's useful today.

Tools: Depends. What should that tool do? Various graphics and animation libraries are available, if that's what you're asking about.
