Creating application from scratch - how to make a good app plan

HI Community,

I am starting to build my own application in JAVA which will help me and maybe others in future to learn new words. I got some initial idea on how to create it, but the most difficult thing for me is to create a good plan of objects which will need to be created for my app.

As I want to use JAVA and all the things which I learned already from JAVA course I want to use object oriented programming in my app.

So after this long introduction, my question is finally coming....Do you know from experience some good way of planning objects in your newly created application? When to use abstract classes or interfaces, as I am still struggling with the way of how to use knowledge from course in real life and real development?

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me.

Regards, Peter
