I have been studying Java for about two months now, I think I have gotten a good understanding of the constructs, polymorphism, abstraction, inheritance, after reading through the Head First java book, Im really starting to love java!. This book has some exercises at the end of each chapter which are normally adding into additional code, crosswords, and matching output to multiple choice code snippets.
However, I first began programming in Ruby using Chris Pines "How to Program" a while back now, this has more 'write programs from scratch' exercises at end of chapter, does anyone know of an online source or book that has some exercises like this?

One site that is quite fun is Project Euler, but it's bent is towards mathematical programming. For an app, you could start with some games, but stick to something reasonably simple like Craps or Mastermind; it doesn't sound like you're ready to tackle Chess yet - although a program that simply manages a chess game between two humans might be an interesting project.
Other than that: Google is your friend. I'd suggest something like "simple Java project exercises".
