    Default Hi folks

    Im an artist looking into learning Java for a specific goal. I have used the painting apps and the Oekakis, but of them all I like an App called Sketcher, but it lacks what I want. I am hoping I can get pushed in the right direction as to what I should learn and what would be needed to create an online multi user paint app with tablet support. I know its daunting for someone who hasn't coded in any program, but I have the time and it is a project that has had my interest for some time now.

    Hello and welcome to the forums, glad you have a passion for something and you want to use Java to accomplish your goal.

    It doesn't sound to me like there should be any show stoppers for creating that kind of an application using Java. I'm unsure about the tablet and how one of those works but if its just more or less mouse movements then you'd be alright

    I know that the applets were done with java, and there is a (program?) that the user can download that works with java to provide pressure sensitivity. It also has a download for java developers to use, so I wouldn't have to start from scratch on enabling the tablet functionality. You can see an example of what im wanting to do Happy Time Sketcher Room
