Hi all,

I am looking for some fresh software project ideas that can be developed using Java.

Thanks in advance for the help

Hi djr33

I am looking for medium to medium-large java projects. Need not be a web project.

Java is the language of choice for many application developers... y'know... programs.

Is this just a trial?

Duplicate notepad. That's a good challenge. Then add some fun features.... bold, italics, etc.

Heck, make a browser :p

Well, my first "project" on learning a new language is always to build an IRC bot in it. IRC is a nice simple protocol, and it's just like "Hello World" for those a little more advanced :)
One of many projects I have unfinished is an attempt to do something similar to Microsoft's Monad shell, which passes .NET objects back and forth instead of textual data, for *n?x. This requires rewriting some of the basic command-line programs like ls or writing filters for them. Should be a large, interesting, but not-too-difficult exercise in serialisation, process control, and stream operation.

Heck, make a browser :p

I Concur, Then We Can Finally have A browser That Follows All The Standards!

But it Would Require Quite A bit of Knowledge on how dtds are interpreted, and also following css, JS, (x)html as they evolve and updating the browser.

would be good for a community project for DD, far too big for one person, no matter how epic that person may be.

I'm generally not one to advocate huge IDEs, but Eclipse is very nice.

Make a top-down fantasy RPG game, like Zelda. Great practice for any object-based programming language. (And no, I don't just want another Zelda game, I'm just saying that it's excellent practice for a coder. Which it is.)
