    I have been working in Core Java 5 domain for past 2 years now. My
    work does not involve a lot of Java skills to be applied. I wanted to
    keep a check on my existing skills and learn other popular stuff in
    the industry. So I would appreciate if anyone could help me with:

    1. How to know what all is popular in industry these days (in core
    Java).
    2. I wanted to write some dummy projects to learn new features of Java
    5 or 6, from where to get ideas?
    3. In what all open source projects can I contribute.

    Any other tips are welcome.
    Thanks

    PS: I have posted same query on Joel forum to address wider audience.

    Find a project that interests you, download it, build it, modify it,
    offer patches:

    <http://code.google.com/>
    <http://sourceforge.net/>

    Or start from scratch:

    <http://mindprod.com/project/projects.html>
