Im now starting to create my own side scroller in java but before i start i want one question answeared.. I didn't find any answear for this on google so i will try my luck here..

Basicaly i think i've seen somewhere that when you create a game in java there is something you can extend your class with something like GamePanel or something or is this not true? Do you just use Jframe for your java games?

I'd recommend using something like Slick for a 2D game instead.

I did use that but would it hurt making a game with normal java no libraries ?


No your fine without using any additional libraries. When I used Java I didn't use anything extra.

You might find these interesting. The ones that involve creating the screen might be useful.
