hi everyone first off.

wondered if someone could help me. i'm in the final year of my BSc course and have the idea of building a website that lets users views different club events from around the region. I also intend to use RSS technology to keep the user updated. i've been told this may not have enough complexity to warrant a good project.

can anyone suggest any other idea;s to add to this perhaps that will work.
sending info to WAP enabled phones perhaps??????

thanks

JSP Wiki already exists :)
In fact there's an open source wiki with exactly that name (which is indeed written as a set of JSPs).

the original idea is indeed not very complicated. RSS feeds are just standard components to plug into existing frameworks and servers so add only the little complexity of adding a few lines to some configuration files.
You'll have to come up with something that actually requires some programming rather than plugging ready-made products together and maybe making some graphics and stylesheets.

Create a website than can run an interpreter. I send, paste or type a short program code into the site's entry field and the site returns the result. The language I like to see is of course Python.

If you go that route, make it real-time with "AJAX." (Otherwise the project could take less than 10 lines of code.) Then write a tetris in Python, and run it over the Javascript console. :-)

Well, you'd have to put in a very serious security layer to prevent harmful code from being executed.
Too many websites (and other applications) forget about that, allowing the user to execute unguarded code on the server with often disastrous results.
That would be the real project, the presentation and user interface the icing on the cake.

Neat idea.
