Hi,

I'm looking for fun programming ideas to learn Java. I'm not really experienced but I would like some ideas about what to create with Java.
For example a simple Notepad application.

Any great ideas on exercises would be super :)

Thx for the links :) but these are exercises for little pieces of programming.
I'll use them :) but what I meant was a good idea to make a small program like a little NotePad or some sort of other simple programs like an agenda, etc...
Anyone any good ideas? Keep in mind that I'm still a beginning programmer.

One of the first GUI apps I made was a Dice Roller. Had each of the different types of dice, permitted custom dice, and the ability to roll different dice simultaneously, also could do mathematical calculations on each, added the result up, and kept a record of all rolls. Eventually made it so you could exclude the lowest die in a set of rolls and that number would be greyed out on the display.

Doesn't have to be all that complicated, but it's an idea.

Making a Yahtzee or MasterMind app isn't too tough as well, and you get to enjoy the results.

Programming is a branch of mathematics.
