    How about developing a simple board game interface?

    I was going to start a thread in a few days about a problem I'm having with a project of mine. I need to create a kind of rule database that is expandable without changing the program. Maybe you can help me develop that and make a nice final project out of it?

    If you're interested I'll post some of my requirements in a next post. You can always decide not to do it if you think it would be too complicated or not fit for your course project. I wouldn't think less of you if you turned it down. It's just a suggestion.


    Best of luck with whatever you pick,

    Alice

    Hey Alice, thank you for the response. Actually, the project i need to work on should be Non-Graphical and not related to database coz we have not covered these topics. I need to develop a simple program like, u know, library system, school system etc .. but they are way too common.

    I would've loved to help u out but i think your project is a bit above my level of understanding. I am sorry for that. and i m sure that people here will definitely help u out.

    Asking other people what you should program is like asking other people what you should have for dinner. You might get some answers, but really, it's up to you- what you're in the mood for, what you're interested in, what you want.

    Do you have no hobbies? No interests? Take one of them and build a program around that.

    Ok. Well the graphical part is almost completed, but never mind.

    Don't you worry about that.

    Another idea, although not te be underestimate either, is a logistics manager:

    You have a list of packages with a delivery address for each, and you have a list of trucks. Using the Google Directions API you can calculate the distances between all the delivery points and with that list generate the most efficient itineraries for the trucks.

    This API is not as complicated as it looks. You just need correct Google maps formatted addresses, and the number of requests Google allows is limited per day. The real difficulty however will be managing all the distances between the delivery points to generate lists for your trucks. I'm sure you'll need every bit of Java you know to make this program.

    Let me know what you think about it.

    I completely agree on the first part, and tht's what i am asking for .. wht u'll have for dinner? if i think i can cook it, i'll certainly go for that ..

    What you said is pretty good. I've interests in cricket, music .. how can i take them into consideration? tht's where i get confused..
