How about a store application. Or here is an idea, a bookstore. You can make it as big or small as you want. Some features to think about: a shopping cart with add/remove/checkout (how will you use the actionlistener), managing the display (what layout manager will you use), how will you add new titles and manage inventory (how will the getters and setters work). A project like this could have many classes all working together. If you want to get more complex, tie the application into a database and store the inventory data in the database. If you want a thread, add a clock which displays the current time and updates itself). You may also want to be able to write to a file, such as printing out an order form to a txt file. There is lots you could do with this kind of project.
