Welcome to the Ranch

How much have you managed to program? Are there any topics you would be particularly interested in?

One of possibilities could be Automated Teller Machine (ATM) simulator.
Quite big possibilities to work around.

A search of 'beginner java projects' brings up a boatload of ideas. If you check out Reddit it provides a fairly extensive list.

Also, check out the Cattle Drive here on the Java Ranch. While not necessarily beginner projects, working though them will make you think and learn. The nice thing is, you can see the projects and get the requirements without having to pay for them; the downside is you cannot discuss problems on the boards. d

I highly recommend looking through the papers written by Wilson. Contains a ton of information you will be referring back to quite often, especially when starting out. His treatise on User Input will teach you quite a bit, and save you problems in the long term.

And finally, if you have installed NetBeans/Eclipse/someOtherIDE -- uninstall them. You need to learn how the compiler and your environment works. The IDEs will hide details, and something that works fine in your IDE won't run as a standalone app on another system.

To much info, I know. Good luck.

Regards,
Robert
