Greetings:

I am taking a Java course right now and I thought what better way to learn than to build a Java banner rotator. I was wondering what are the disadvantages and/or advantages of using java to build a banner rotator.

Currently I only know how to build java applets...I will be learning applications next semester.

Can anybody tell me if it is worth me spending my time building one...if it is good I can even use it for my site.

Thanks!
