    Exclamation login, forum and news in a java program?

    Hello guys/girls.
    I need some help with the java program that im about to start.(gotta do something in the next 2 months holiday instead of gaming ) I already know the most of the basics about java.
    I dont really need help with any code, but a point in the right direction. What subjects i need to look into. If u have time and know a nice place that got something similar to what i am looking for then a link would truly be appreciated.

    The program.
    I am not going to spoil it all right now
    But the program will contain a login menu when starting the program. Means that you need to have a login if you want to use the program. The register page will be on a website. When you are logged in you can do multiple things. You can go to something similar to a forum, where you can post threads, respond etc. You will have a profile. A front page with news etc. And i think thats it for now i think.


    Round up
    Things thats needed:
    • Login - to a webpage database.
    • Something similar to a forum (with profile)
    • Front page with news etc.


    I know some of you would say "Why not make a website then". Well its because i might need the code later on in my school projects. And i would rather learn to program it, then script a website
    Forgot to add that i am using eclipse. If thats a bad choice of software to this then please let me know.

    I hope some of you guys/girls can give me some advices.
    Jonas

    Thread moved from Advanced Java. Please don't post beginner questions in that section.

    Also, please go through the Forum Rules, particularly the third paragraph. And before you get round to posting your efforts and asking a question that can actually be meaningfully answered on the forum, go through the Guide For New Members and BB Code List - Java Programming Forum - Learn Java Programming

    you should probably learn php or html for making that website.

    also look into java GUI's.
    you will need to compare some strings for the login window, look into that.
    if you want to save the login information such as usernames and passwords, you will need a database or write them into a textfile, so look into: java with databases, bufferedwriter, bufferedreader.

    Ofcourse you can start with Java
    I would suggest the following topics in the order I have mentioned

    1) OOPS concepts
    2) String and StringBuffer
    3) Collections
    4) Wrapper classes
    5) Threads
    6) Synchronization
    7) Sorting Collections
