    a messageboard in JSP.

    school is over, and well i dont want to lose my skills, so something like a message board should be challenging enough right?

    if you have any more ideas of what to build (java, jsp) i'd like to hear. im up for the challage :big grin:

    That sounds great. I'd love to see the finished product.

    What would be the backend?

    I think you'll be surprised how easy a message board is. I started one many months ago, but never really got too far. The database design is key really. Also, don't just stick to JSP. Use the full set of J2EE tools. Plan on having JavaBeans (a user bean for example), Servlets to handle all of the processing, and only use JSPs to display the content. Maybe I should try to write one again. :)

    yeah jsp would be my gui.

    servlets for login/out/cookies

    beans for rest.

    database management wouldnt be hard (IMHO) since i am fairly good with it.

    if you guys want to see my last group project for my Java Class (it was an online airline.) its missing some minor features since our group lost a member and he said he was going to do the stuff we were missing, we got hurt quit a bit.

    anyways, off to quit my job! cya :big grin:

    Not really database management or usage. But design. How the data is organized. That's going to be the most important piece IMO.
