Hi Kapil,
     I just wanted to reach out to see if you might be interested in the 
Apache Pivot project (  This is written in 
Java, and is an alternative to Java Swing, JavaFX and/or SWT as a way to 
build rich Java GUI applications.
     We (as the Pivot PMC) haven't really setup any formal projects for 
mentees yet, but I know of a lot of things that could be done, if you 
are at all interested.

Let us know,
~Roger Whitcomb
Apache Pivot PMC Chair
