TrackTrek was meant to be a track meet data entry and reporting application, but it did not get far due to being sparsely developed for free over one and a half years. I was in high school at the time, and I did not have sufficient experience with requirements elicitation, scoping, and budgeting, leading to the eventual abandonment of the project. Fortunately, the project did expose me to Java programming as well as its abstract window toolkit (AWT) and socket networking capabilities.

This project was developed using Microsoft Visual J++, which permitted the Java class files to be compiled into EXE files for use with Microsoft's Java virtual machine, which is now defunct.
