Welcome to the Ranch

How much experience do you have? Can you connect to a database?
I suggest you ask your friends what sort of program or application they would find useful, and write that.

My advice is always the same: work on something that YOU are interested in, not something that other people suggest you might do. That way it's much more likely that you will apply yourself, and try to do a good job of it. There must be things that you have long wanted to automate - why not combine what you want to see done with what you want to show off?

Where do I find courses especially free ones that would teach me Java in the database aspect, I aspire to become a software engineer using Java and later on a penetration tester in the cyber security aspect
Please reference would do so much help, I am currently starting a course on Java collection frameworks seeing that I have completed and finally understood all the basics of Java in previous studies with certificates, I also would appreciate GitHub repositories

I am interested in Java and aspire to be a software engineer, Can you give me a reference of where or sites I can use to perfect my studies in what I'm interested in
I am eager to study and I'm a fast learner as I understand myself but I also need a personal mentor which I wouldn't mind, and also resources that must have helped in the past, I'm ready to dedicate a whole year of daily consistency, please help me

For databases, I suggest the section in the Java™ Tutorials. Check that they don't suggest you use Class.forName() to open your connection.
For other things, I am afraid I don't know. I do know, however, that there is a load of not very good and poor material out there on the Internet, and beginners often don't know when they have picked up something incomplete, let alone total rubbish.

Please don't use the quote button to reply; that simply duplicates material and that duplicated material is liable to removal.

thank you for the hyperlinked section, would you suggest I now use JDK 8 instead of JDK 20, and would I get certificates from Oracle

how then do I reply so you can see it, The link from the hyperlinked section does not tally with my aspiration, I don't intend to get into data analysis fully but into software and web development, Perhaps there is another link where Oracle has its tutorials for me
