HI
I am slowly progressing with java and mainly android and to switch career and become a programmer, I would like to ask as performance review objective for the year to build a small java project, so that i can show in my CV that i do not have only a theoretic knowledge.

I noticed for instance that there are a lot of ripetitive tasks as you open outlook, write some names go in a folder log to some sites, fill the passwords insert some references retrieve information etc.
I was worndering if I can make this data entry job less repetitive using java, but I do not know which key words I have to find in google to find a java library that allow to give direct commands to windows 7, of course then I would do the view part using swings or even better a fast android emulator.

The java.lang.Runtime give you the ability to execute commands to the underlying operating system, but probably isn't going to be much help.
The project you have in mind is something that java is really well suited for.
Java runs in a virtual machine - which means it should be operating system agnostic.
That also means that a lot of the things you would want to do with this application aren't there, because you don't have direct control hooks into the operating system for the most part.

My suggestion: find another project.

i found three main ways to proceed in this article,
the right word is finding java automation maybe is better if I focus on apps and drop the project anyway.
