What about a database client console for MySQL, which is having a GUI.

Generally, when students choose a final project, they should choose it based on some that they are interested in... after all, they are going to be spending a year on it, maybe working lots of nights and weekends, so it should be something that they enjoy.

Once you figure out what you want to do, and you like it.... you should have little problems figuring out ways to use a DB and GUI.

I don't know if this suits you, but my project uses a database and a better GUI.

I wrote a program that reads chess notation from a database of games. And this notation is processed in such away that you can play through a game one move at a time by clicking an action button to advance through the moves one at a time and the pieces will move to the appropriate squares. Or I can create a chess game by moving the pieces about on the board, or playing against the computer, and save the game back to the database.

So if you are interested in gaming, there are several different games that can be programmed this way.

Thank you very much for your idea. I liked it very much.I was interested in making such a game in thisyear but in my college it is advised not to make any game because teachers who evaluate the projects say that this project is copied that's why i am not sure but i will make this project definitely, If not in this year then in next year, because i liked the idea.
Thank you very much and thanks for your reply.

You're a year away from graduating and you can't think of a Java project? Man, I have a *stack* of projects I'll never have time to get to--I'd pay money to not feel overwhelmed with potential tasks.
