What should I make with my skill level?

Posted 24 October 2011 - 03:19 PM

First of all, I HAVE read the project lists and nothing from there seems to interest me. I know all of the Java basics, some intermediate and a few things on swing and awt. I've made a text editor but that was following a tutorial so I don't feel a sense of accoplishment. Could anyone link me to a tutorial for sending information through ports? I've looked on Google but I could only find one from 1998. Thanks for all of your help,
Ken

Take a look at socket programming. A quick search in the tutorial section here came up with this:

You can attempt to create your own chat program with that code.

Sorry, I could only follow the first part because somehow, the code tags were messed up and there are <span> tags all over in the code.

Oh that's because I searched for socket programming. You just have to remove the stuff after the last /

Its a bit of a jump to socket programming. Mac has produced a fantastic guide for skills which should be covered at each level. I will try and find the link for you or maybe someone else has it (I think it should be stickied!).

Ok. Thanks. Socket programming seems a little easy. I'm going to try to make a program where 1 client can send messages to a server. Then I'll try to make it so multiple users can do it. It would just be for something like if I had a game server people could report hackers or something. Then later on I might make it so the server can reply.

Anything else I could do with JFrames? The Java Sockets are starting to get confusing for me.

JFrames are just containers. They just hold Components. Think about what you want to make a GUI for, and go from there. No JComponent is really that powerful. Most of them are pretty simple, in fact. The Project Ideas lists have lots of topics. I'm sure you've wanted to make your own applications. As tlhIn'toq would say- look around and see what it is that needs solving, and write a basic program to solve that problem or make life easier!
