    Default Grabbing exchange Data, and creating live graphs from it

    Hey guys. I am new to the Java world, and wanted to make my first real usable project this. I need to pull data from a Cryptocoin exchanges' API about the orders, and create a live graph from it. Something like bitcoinwisdom.com , but not all the bells and whistles.

    I have no idea where to start, and just need someone to give me a little push, maybe show me the tools I need to make it, or maybe some good tutorials. I know it will be basic starting off, and I can gradually make it better. So that's fine.

    Any help would be appreciated immensely.

    Welcome to the Forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code correctly and other useful tips for newcomers.

    That's a bit of an obscure request, and we'd expect you to find your own tutorials and then ask for help with the code as needed. Google is your friend.

    I have googled for hours trying to wrap my head around it. I wouldn't just post on a forum asking for help if I didn't. I can look at all of the "Beginner" tutorials I want, but still not find what I am looking for as a base.

    Break the problem down into defined requirements. For instance, you first need to understand the API you are relying on, then pull data from the website, the (possibly) parse the data, then graph the data in some form (bar chart? dot plot? pie chart?). Work through each requirement sequentially - do you understand the API? Do you know how to download a webpage? Asking specific questions about any of these steps you do not understand can be a lot more productive in forums such as this
