    Alright so I have an assignment for my class during my finals week this week. I have to find a Java web app and describe in detail how it works and what it does, then say what I would do to improve it. Can someone tell me where to find just a simple app they know of, I'd really appreciate it.

    Some web based IM clients use Java.

    No other specific apps/applets come to mind at the minute.

    Er - normally a java web program is usually an applet or a servlet, not an app. So what are you after?

    Here is a link to a demo that can be run as either an applet or a servlet.

    Some desktop apps are created in Java. Example: freemind.

    Loads of apps written in Java, both thick and thin client. I'm not doing your homework for you, go look for one !:D

    LOL, wasn't really needing someone to do the homework for me, just interested in what people have run across on the web. At this point I don't even need to do my final to pass and graduate, just a formality at this point, but I figure go out with a bang.

    Ok popular stuff written in Java :-

    Hibernate, geronimo, JBOSS, Grails, Groovy, Eclipse, Spring, Azureus,
    Quartz, Documentum, Amazon, Ebay, Gmail, Salesforce.com
    etc.

    As for simple stuff, as mentioned look for Applets and WebStart/JNLP stuff or JavaFX.

    Look at opensource stuff using sourceforge.

    Theres lots of applets to demonstrate maths and engineering principals, control theory etc.

    Theres JSpider which is a basic web crawler in the vein of wget.

    Theres an infinite array of stuff out there, get googling and stop being lazy !

    Heres a list I came up with in 2 minutes with google...

    Part of the Mars rover earth based analysis software was written in Java too.

    Ya I googled for awhile, I think it was more that I was confused because I didn't realize how powerful Java could be, and I thought my class was looking for something as basic as the dinky little programs I've had to write for it. Thanks for the input though, I went with writing about FreeMind, such an awesome tool.
