Hi! I am beginner in java and looking for some help and ideas in developing basic solitaire game. To start-with , I am trying to implement just one class and it's methods at the moment and below is attached code and snapshot of what I tried. please suggest where and what sort of changes I need to make ? Thanks in advance!!

Class : Card

Fields:
cardIndex: The card's index, from 1 to 52.

Methods:
getSuit: Returns the card's suit.
getValue: Returns the card's value (such as 10, king, etc).
colour: The colour of the card is `red' if this card is a heart or diamond, and `black' otherwise.

toString: Returns a string representation of this card, including its suit and rank. Example: Ace of clubs would be ClubA, ten of diamonds would be Diamond10, and queen of spades would be SpadeQ.

paintThis(Graphics g) Draws the card. In the simple GUI, this should draw a Rectangle, with the string representation of the card written in the colour corre-sponding to the colour of the card (either black or red)

Good start. A few suggestions:

* Use a Enum to represent the card's suit SPADE,HEART,CLUB,DIAMOND
* The Card class should be a POJO, put the main method in a new class
* The card's value (eg A,2,3 etc) may probably be a Enum too, rather than an array
* If you want to associate a card's color, use the java.awt.Color class
