Hey Guys I've just signed up!

I'm relatively new to Java and have so far read and worked through the majority of a few textbooks and understanding most of the concepts (for beginners anyway).

I'm unsure of what to do next, I've started studying Swing and would like to build a few projects of my own.

Any suggestions as to what is the best learning approach?

THanks

Adam

Think of a program you'd like to have or code.  A lot of people start with a simple calculator.  Maybe start it without Swing, make it modular, write some tests for it, then add the GUI after that.  But any project that interests you would be good to start with as long as it's not too involved.
