Hi friends,

I gave SCJP6 (or OCPJP6) yesterday. It was about a month of preparation, followed by solving mock tests.

My current job requires understanding of JSP and Servlets, so I'm planning to give SCWCD (or OCPJWCD) next.
It's better to wait for SCWCD6 which will go to production in about 3 months.

So, I'm planning to contribute to some open source project which uses Java for Web Component Development (like this JForum)
Please suggest some projects, which you may be working/have worked in the past.

Thanks.

There are lot of open source projects out there on the Internet.
But I would like to know which ones do experts recommend on Javaranch :-)

Hi Trivikram,

It is always a good idea to use the things you are learning in a small project. I always create a bit of software for voluntary organisation I am attached to but adding your knowledge to an open source project is something worthful as well.

I am always impressed by KeePass (is an open source password manager). The thing I missed in that software is that when I am on holiday I can't access my passwords (because the internet cafe's don't allow USB sticks)
I have downloaded the software of the mobile edition (http://sourceforge.net/projects/keepassj2me/) and altered it to a version that I can read my passwords from a password file on the internet (or on my computer).

Just an idea, there are too many good projects!

Good luck
Regards,
Frits

That's nice Frits. Thanks for sharing it.
It's always good to use your knowledge to increase productivity.

I'd worked on many Web based projects while in College, in which PHP was used in the backend.
Porting them using JSP and Servlets will give good practice.
But working on new challenge is always better...
