The standard Java graphics library does not contain a drawPixel method, but there are plenty of ways to render graphics at the pixel level in Java. In this ShowMeDo John makes use of a BufferedImage so that an array of integers can be used as pixels for rendering on screen.

See additional information and source code in the wiki(JavaMontgomeryAppletSeries).

Thanks John for your screencasts on Java graphics. My master's degree project in Computer Science is on Rubik's Cube and Java seems to have way more than I need for displaying and editing cube graphics. I enjoyed your screencasts for their visual clarity, and your style of speaking and coding. They are very inspiring.

By the way, are those real seagulls I heard in the background from time to time, or was that a television, or just something odd going on with the audio compression?

great set of videos

sir, The video related to applets are really nice,i would also want you to teach us some of the fundamentals related to threading and exceptions.

i also want to know how to remember all these classes.coz its really hard to keep track of all these inbuilt classes.

great.. keep it up

one of the best feature of this site is that it allow s to download videos for those who have low bandwidths.


This is a great great tutorial!!! I am new in Java & I am learning a lot...the best I have seen so far on the web. Video tutorials are really really usuful... much faster than reading a tone of pages on a book. Please continue like this, I am looking forward to continue my "online" Java classes and watch the next video. I wish I could help Mr. Montgomery soon with some Java video from my part... great job and thank you!!



Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for John
