simple projects to practice
Hi everyone. I just finished reading "Head First Java" and want to dive into real world coding.
Is there any resources -books, website etc - which explain simple java projects as a way to start coding? What about contributing in SIMPLE java open source projects? Do you know any good one? Also is it a good idea to start a framework like Spring or not?
Thanks

Have you already completed oracle java tutorial? Despite the fact sample you may find there aren't from real world, they provide a way to put your hand (after having learnt to use your head first ) on coding in java.

If you haven't done any serious coding yet I advise not to use frameworks, particularly not such all-encompassing ones as Spring. Contributing to open source projects is likely impractical at this point. How about you implement something that interests you? Maybe something you've long wanted to automate, or have some automated support for?

actually it is a really god idea, but you know, whenever I tried to do this I faced with lots of questions and problems i couldn't handle ... Also I agree with you about the frameworks ...

You're welcome. By the way, listen to Ulf's advice and don't use frameworks when you're at a very beginner's stage. Of course, you will have to deal with a lot of issues while trying to write code that some library had already implemented and made it faster,cleverer, smarter. Don't worry about. To grow up in knowledge, one has to mistake and to learn from his/her errors.

You can do a combination of the two. HFJ gave you the basics, now conjure up a project, and use a combination of your book, and the tutorials to make it work.

After reading HFJ myself, I went to the tutorials (which are a great resource). But you might (as I did) find your interest wavering unless you see some fruits from your labour, hence the project.
