Start small. Very small. Just about every programmer's first step is just getting the language to print "Hello World" on some kind of form or display. There's a reason for that - It's the simplest complete program you can write; it verifies that everything is working and it gives a nice sense of "oh, ok."
Thanks for the info guys. I've downloaded JDK but have know idea how to run it.
I would like to get a good understanding of every aspect of game creating. If I feel like I'm progressing and learning new things I will put my all into it. I just need to get my head around this first step.
Getting a program running (java), so I can start writing lol

Cheers! For me, it was the Vic-20 - I also have fond memories of the Amiga 500.
Thanks a lot guys there's some great advice here first thing in the morning I'm gonna get netbeans and have a look at that.
When I was a kid I used to constantly sit in front of my Amiga 500 plus drawing game ideas and trying to program games with my father. It was a good feeling and I'm getting it all back again now ;)
