i'm starting my final year of computing (Hons) degree on mid of November. Since we are supposed to do an individual final year project, i'm having a basic idea of doing a project on data mining using Java. We are given a time period of 6 months to finish the project. Your ideas on this will be highly appreciated.

Thank You..

First, get a bunch of interesting data and put it in a database. Proper data mining has to have lots and lots of data.
Second, write Java code to access it.

The hard part is finding interesting connections in the data. This is essentially "cluster analysis" where you want to find in what dimensions, by what metrics, the data clumps together.

Also look at "Bayesian analysis" which can classify data by probabilistic interactions.

This is not easy stuff, but could make for a very interesting Senior project
