I am interested in improve my skills and been able to get a better job. I have though that a good way could be participate in an open source project or create my own.

Do you know any open source community in which I could participate? Could I create my own community?

Or maybe contribute to the JavaRanch community?

Also I have checked in my experience(5 years), I have learnt a lot of programming but I lack of soft skills and that is important I want develop them.

Any advice?

Sourceforge.net and apache.org are full of projects that are looking for help. Or check out http://java-source.net/. I generally advise to pick a project that you like and use yourself, since that makes it more likely that you'll stay interested in the long term (which I think is the only time frame that makes sense to become involved in a project).

You can also check for a project and get yourself involved at the mozilla.org ... they have plenty of projects
