I'm taking a course about building projects in Java. As a part of it, we have to give a 25-30 minutes lectrue about a subject in programming. They want it to be practical (but not necessarily useful for us)- so interesting algorithms for example are not suitable.
Subjects they gave as an example are Maven and JIT compilation.
I wondered if anybody here has an idea for something worth talking about? I thought an interesting API might be a good idea, but I welcome any suggestions.
Are the topics to be taken specific to Java SE? I think they should be.
I think a tutorial on Maven would be good topic.
or may be you can pick up some project from the [Apache Projects|http://projects.apache.org/indexes/category.html] and do a small demo.
