I have a 50 minute video describing a high level description of studies and strategies within MotiveWave and Java. I got though the tools needed for development. It is highly recommended to be comfortable with Java. One good programming book is this from the Head First Java series.
If you like these topics get more free tech stuff in these books
Also, understand the different editions with their limitations. There are some work around but you really want to move the Ultimate edition once you get serious or profitable.
The MotiveWave platform is quite sophisticated but it takes a lot to understand how Java works with it. Be patient as you try to learn and customize what you want to make.
Refer to the Javadoc for specific method usage
