    I finished my last Java class at uni the other day and I really want to keep expanding my Java skills, but for that I need a project. Can anyone suggest something that would be useful to you? I don't want to make a bot, simply because I wouldn't know where to start, I'm guessing it would have something to do with HTTP requests. I would like to make something that will run in an Applet so it can be used in the cloud.

    Something like a custom orders manager or something?

    Write games....games are difficult and fun at the same time so you learn lots.

    I'd suggest a game where you had a pile of shit which would be your ammo. Then you threw that shit around, hitting evil targets like mat cutts or bin laden.

    That's a good idea. Do you suggest using the slick library?

    Go program a runescape bot script and sell it. Decent money to be made. It's the game I played when I was younger :p

    if you really want to go deeper into the java space, i'd recommend checking out groovy, it's like a smarter/simpler version of java!
    then i'd recommend checking out grails, it's a java web framework that allows you to focus on developing and leave the nitty gritty of web applications in the background. having said that i was a java preacher until i was converted to python and now will never go back :)

    Java junkie here :) If you want to learn Java deeply you need to know core Java like a PRO :) What's the best way ? Prepare for Oracle certificate. This exam questions might look ridicuolos, but it helps a lot to learn all the logic behind Java.

    I've bought this 2 weeks ago:
    http://enthuware.com/index.php/mock-exams/oracle-certified-associate/java-programmer-certification-i
    Price: $9.95

    This are the best spent $9.95 in my life and it helped me to learn much much more :)

    you can try and develop games with java, but if you really want to make it more challenging with your java, then go with android development.

    look for something that needs an automation, like manual inventory system, loan system. You can ask your friends on this. You practice your skills at the same time you help them ;)

    Make a super simple yet addictive android app. Something like the next Flappy birds. 50k a day. Worth a shot!

    Ibilalx is right, Gold farming scripts can be profitable especially with tribot

    you should make the next amazing game with those skills , i have an idea for a game but i don't got the skills to make it and i can't share the idea because they will steal it and i don't get the credit, yes i believe the idea is more powerful than the skills because represents the end product.

    A wise man once said: ?Web Services are like teenage sex. Everyone is talking about it, but not many people are actually doing it, and the people that are doing it, aren?t doing it well!?
    Web services are always a good place to start from :D
