i have been studying java for a few months and have found that i learn the most when i actually get my but in a chair and write some code. the exercises on this site have been great for that.
i have an idea for an app that would be useful to me...like- an online video collection lending library i could share with my friends
but, i seem to have a case of writer's block on how to begin. does anyone have some advice on techniques / resources to break a real world problem into code?

Try http://www.javaworld.com/. There is a design technology column.

Good OO design books are hard to come by. The two I would recommend are:
Designing Object-Oriented Software
Designing Object-Oriented C++ Applications Using The Booch Method
My copy of Designing OO Software is a paperback so I am assuming a paperback version is still available. Bob Martin is supposed to have a second edition of his book that uses UML. Don't be put off by the C++. It is a great book!

Talk about serendipity...
I was looking for an IBM paper on JVM architecture and somehow stumbled across this. Not sure if it is good or not but probably worth looking at.
Note: I read an article by this person out on javaworld that I strongly disagreed with but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt in this case.

John,
I've read a number of his articles in JavaWorld and found them thought-provoking at the least. Out of curiosity, which particular article(s) of his did you strong disagree with?
