    Default Project ideas

    Hello, i'm new to these forums.
    So far i only understand some of the basic concepts.
    if else, for and while loops, and primative arrays.
    It's difficult to think of fun projects to do when you know so little.
    Can anyone give me any suggestions.
    Also i'm learning Java with a group of friends so ideas where everyone can get involved would be greatly appreciated.
    We are beginning to learn about objects we just finished learning about constructors and visibility and class variables.
    So any ideas on these concepts to would be much appreciated.

    This depends on your other interests. Make a program that does something with another one of your interests. Make a game (one you play via the command prompt for starters). Make a program that calculates something for you (your grade in a class, your load repayment schedule, whatever).

    You might also want to check out Project Euler.

    And if you really can't think of anything "fun" to do, then time to go through the basic tutorials and do every example program in them. Expand on them and change them around to help explore the language.

    you can work on this assignment.
    create a file monitor application: it will monitor all incoming files(.csv format) to the input folder process it move to processedFiles directory
    and save data to database
    there will be a parser which will parse an xml file: xml file will consist list of all valid/expected files, along with expected time of that file and delay period that is allowed, so u have to do check whether file is valid based on the time it arrives and the file name.
    there will be a poller thread which continuously monitors your input directory.
    there will be a worker thread that process ur valid csv file and send data to dbutility that will save data to database.
    Gud luck... enjoy java world
