I tried to find any thread discussing projects using jsp and servlets but in vain.

Could you please gave synopsis of any project(s) which can be done by beginner in jsp and serlvets and look good on Resume too.

Thanks for your help!

You can do many simple project like student registration application, video rental application, article publishing application etc. Any of these applications give you an opportunity to practice objectives discussed in SCWCD.

I am not sure of any web sites for source. But you can develop something similar to "JavaRanch" to post/publish topics/articles.

You can plan something on the following lines

-- Identify the processes in the application
-- Separate UI and business logic
-- Create a database schema
-- Now design the application using the patterns you learned
-- Code the application

In fact this exercise can give you more confidence in designing and developing an end-to-end application.

Thanks Sri...for all our inputs.

I think creating site like javaranch (forums/discussion) is quite large and very fine project. May be i will opt for something like book library, inventory or like the one you suggested in your first post, They are kinda not the big ones and are quite fine too!

let me know your thoughts....

Thanks for the steps you wrote...they would be indeed helpful!

Whatever you feel comfortable with

When you develop a website like javaranch, you do not need to do all features in the first version of the site. You do some basic features like login and posting in the first revision. Then you add features like editing a post and emailing a topic to someone. This gives you a real life experience in planning, designing, developing and deploying an application. Most of the major applications are built incrementally.

Having an all round experience looks good on your resume too

Well, there is no simple answer to your question. I referred to books, APIs, blue prints, forums etc. when programming. Planning and designing are a different ball game and I learned them over a period of time from my peers, seniors, tech articles and forums.
