    Default Small Project Ideas

    Well, I have nothing to do so. I am willing to help people develop small Java applications if you wish. So give me your idea and I'll let you know what I think of it and if I can help you out or not

    Hey Chris,

    I have some applications that I would like to work on and make available to the members of these forums.

    I'm going on holiday any minute now but once I get back I will give you my ideas.. Would be good to work on something together.

    Hey Truffy the general idea between me and JavaPF atm is to develop some software that can be made avaliable to forum memebers, so if you have any ideas of stuff then that would be great. Also we are just looking to do them together with others too to reduce work load since people have full time Jobs and things to attend too.

    Well depending on what we have we can see what we can get going, some of the bigger things may have a section you could do or something. Have to look at what we have and who wants to help I guess

    Nice to see some interest though

    Hey guys,

    I'm back from holiday. I'm ready to discuss ideas for projects..
    I was thinking we could use this thread to brain storm ideas and then take it from there.

    Welcome back. Glad you are

    Well My idea, is kind of an RSS feed that doesn't need an RSS feed. So basically, you run the application it signs you in to javaprogrammingforums.com then sits in the icon tray at the bottom an alerts you of new threads and posts etc, as they happen.

    Just an idea.

    Well I was looking at developing it with what was avaliable within java.net, but the major problem I had was trying to log in and store the cookies etc. Largely because of the fact your login for uses VB functions -_-. But Ye we could always go via a VBulletin API I guess, just though it would be a nice thing to have, saves hitting refresh etc and you can run it at work without them knowing xD

    Hi guys,

    I was looking for a thread or forum like this

    When I read your posts I thought that if there is no API for the forums, maybe there might be a plugin or something like that we could use that generates RSS for us as people post new threads. We could then just download this RSS in this application and notify the user. The problem however might be that RSS feeds might not work so well with user authentication.

    I've created some applications before however were I've used "screen scraping" to parse a website for the information I wanted. Something like that might also work.

    Oh and btw, I'm interested in helping out if need be, maybe start a project up on Project Kenai — We're More Than Just a Forge

    Hey guys. I looked into it and there doesn't seem to be a Java vBulletin API.

    I have the archive switched on which is basically a clean search engine friendly version of the forum -

    http://www.javaprogrammingforums.com/sitemap/

    I was thinking we could use & parse the information on this page for the application.

    There isn't really much reason to make it login to the forums. When a new thread is posted the word 'new' is included in the thread title. This is a good indication of a new thread. When a new post is added to an existing thread, that thread moves to the top of the list. This could be used as the indication of a new post.. You get me?

    Thats unfortunate, however I had another idea, that perhaps we could put together a library of common things that we resolve on these forums. Something like a jpfcommons project. This could for instance contain code for generating random password or a utility to extract NetInfo etc.

    We could then gradually let more members commit things to this. Could be fun.

    Yeah I like that idea. It's always handy to have a code library! That's why I set up the Tips & Tutorials forum..

    How do you want to go about starting this?

    I don't know, maybe we could create a project on one of the open source code platforms out there like Google, Sourceforge, Kenai or whatever

    Do we need to define some sort of code structure for people to use or should we just get going?

    Yeah good idea. Which would you suggest? Google, SourceForge, Kenai?! I like Google or SourceForge..

    For now we could just get going and then maybe define a structure once it's underway.
