    Hello to everyone,

    i'm new to Java and OO programming, though familiar with procedural
    languages like Pascal,Cobol,C.
    I have been assigned a project, to simulate some Graph Algorithms (Dijkstra
    etc.).My project mainly deals with
    java applets that simulate algorithms via ANIMATION.
    Could please someone experienced java programmer suggest to me some good
    books i must read in order to program these animation applets?

    Is SWING the only thing i must read ?

    Wishes
    thanasis

    You should learn the Swing basics, may consider learning
    about the powerful Java2D API. And make sure you understand
    threading and buffering techniques.

    Many animated applets combine these techniques and use
    frame-based animation iterations - and that's a good thing.
    I provide a free framework for time-based animations, see
    http://www.jgoodies.com/freeware/animation/
    On the page you can find an article around basics of
    time-based animations.

    For the threading stuff see Sun's Swing connection.

    Hope this helps,
    Karsten
