I am creating a Pacman game in JAVA for my final year project. I''ve already created Pacman animation and can control his movement with the arrow keys. But now my problem is how to create the maze for pacman to interact with it. I will be very greatful if you can point me in the right direction.

at a generic level, you probably could just use a 2D array of booleans, and fill it in so that TRUE means wall and FALSE mean not-wall, and when pacman is moving or turning check to make sure that he is about to move onto a not-wall place. if not, stop him from moving.
or do you mean generating a maze for the game?

Yes I was referring to creating the maze itself.

Just load a bitmap and blt as a background, then use the system that krez said; create an array of booelan representing (x*x) square of the bitmap
