Question some advice please

Hi,

i'm starting a little project and that is to broadcast a web cam using java. my web cam will have 2 motors (vertical and horizontal movement).
i'm trying to learn and do as much by myself but maybe you could point me in the right direction?
right now i'm learning java, swing and using jbuilder to write the code.

thanks in advance!!

You might want to check out the following site that has wonderful tutorials:
http://www.programmingtutorials.com/

You may also go to your local book store and purchase books on Java, which ussually include software to help as well.

All the same, good luck and if you need help, just post back and we'll try to help.

If you want to learn Java, just go through w3schools. Their tutorials are great. All basic steps are given, which are easy to learn.

w3schools.com offers tutorials for Javascript.. I haven't seen java tutorials though.

Are you asking how to controll the motors?
or how to write java video client software?

or a little of both.

the motors are hooked up through my PC's parallel port and i'm looking for a class that can handle that comminication.
the other hint i'm looking for is if there is a class that can handle the webcam side of things...ie classwebcam or something like that.

so yeah, basically a little 'point in the right direction' for both.
thanks

You might want to look at Sun's free tutorial and documentation sections. They wrote the book, so if it exists, they probably know.
