Hi Every one

I am just trying to develop a system like an EPOS system which can work in one machines

I know some java and I did some small assignments. I would do my GUI using JAVA

I know SQL and database and I have decided to use Java DB as an internal Database. probably I will do some SQL for DataBase

my problems is I don't know how to start because I have not done any big projects. I just need to know where is my first step and which way is the best for me

Please let me know if you have any idea regarding my project

Thanks
Farhad

First you need to get an idea of what the system should have (if this is just for the purpose of getting some experience) and what are the functionalities of it. Perhaps looking into some sample POS applications and the details about the domain would be helpful (POS wiki). Then you can start the design process once you have a clear picture of how the system would look like. I suggest start with a very simple functionality then you can build the rest on top of it as you learn more...
