Hello, I am a person who is just out of college and i dont have anykind of pratical experience in java technology. I have learnt java after college.
I just joined a organisation ( still no project assigned).I thought of creating a forum for my organisation.
But i am not sure of how to go about doing it. I personally dont have a mentor at work place.
When i thought about how to do , i ended up with so many question...like.. 1.How would the application start when a user types in the url . 2.Should i create the pages using JSP or html or some other would be better? 3.when i create new thread , would i be creating a new file?? If i am creating a file would't that use more memory?? 4.Would there be a deadlock situation or will it slow down if multiple user access these....
These are some of the question ... Hope i am in the right way.. If not please direct me to the right path.
I am sorry that i put up this post in a wrong forum( i had to do this because i did not get any response in other forum ).

Why to worry about things in which we dont have control, Why to worry about things in which we have control ! !
James sometimes you have to be patient. You will get a reply to your thread in the other forum. Please tell me the link and I'll try to solve the problem over there and not here as this is the wrong forum for this...
James making a forum is a good idea. We already have something in the market which will suit your needs. Please visit the jForum page. It is open source, very easy to use and comes with hsqldb so you can easily configure it. The community is an active one so if in case you have some problem you can get help there itself.
OK James. Someone would move this thread to the correct forum. By that time let me give you some hints. First of all use a database. I think if you are new to this then you will need some help. So I would recommend that you use some tutorial or study some preexisting forum software.
Also you will need some good understanding of Servlets and JSP. Also you will have to use an IDE for faster development. You can use Netbeans or Eclipse. There are also books available on them so learning to use them will not be a problem. They allow good facilities for debugging etc so that would solve some of your problems.
