    Default Java project idea for CS course

    Hi everyone,

    In the course I will be attending this semester, we will be required to make java software that has a commercial value.

    My idea is to rent a web server at the college's course registration time. make the students in our college to log in the website with their school password and submit the specific course sections they want to take. So our server will frequently check the school's website if there is any openings in the specific section and register the student if there is any openings.

    So my question is; is this project can be done with java (I have no idea about web usage of java) and do you think it's an "ok" project to do?

    Is this going to be client or server side?

    You can use an applet as the client side part, or just write something in PHP. That would take the user's request and submit it to a database. Then the server application could, at certain intervals, read that data and check to see if the class is open. The question is, are you going to have access to the class database? Do you want to try and do this through raw HTML?

    However, I don't know how your professor/school/classmates would feel about them having to input their school passwords into a student's project. Keep in mind that you would have to encrypt it and have to make the submissions of that data secure as well.

    You could always just simulate something. Instead of signing up for actual classes, make up some in your own database and use those. Let the user sign up for an account and sign up for classes that way.

    Thank you, I think simulating it is a better idea because there won't be any access to the registration page during the classes anyway. I will be able to see the quotas but not gonna be able to write a code to register for a class.
