    Yes, to begin with GUI's start off with swing. Learn about, setting up JFrames, JPanels, JButtons ect. One thing i would recomend learning as you learn swing is learn why it would be important to do something a certian way, and things you can or canot do with certain components, that will save you frustation later. Also, to begin learning gui stuff, there is a great few tutorials from a youtube user called TheNewBoston. Some of the bestvideo tutorials all around.

    use netbeans. point and click. drag and drop.

    that'll get your GUI up in no time at all (im assuming that u want the product urgently).

    All you'll get "urgently" is a pretty GUI that's dumber than a blonde. Getting it to actually do what you need will be an order of magnitude more difficult than if you learn from the tutorials and hand-code the GUI.

    If you don't believe that, read through the posts in the Swing sections of a few Java forums.

    @theChameleon theres no need to post dictionary links.
    I dont think the op ever used the word "urgent" - thats something you made up.

    More importantly, darryl made a fairly good point. The matisse builder in netbeans makes pretty looking programs "quickly", but getting them to do what you want is another matter.

    I spent literally hours going in circles with matisse trying to get two comboboxes to line up properly and resize nicely, something i can now do in 2minutes via my own code - and it didnt take that long to pick up

    If you're prototyping or are already very proficient with Swing then I agree that NetBeans code generation can help a bit and can save time, but if you're just learning Swing, my experience here is that using NetBeans to generate your code will greatly hinder your ability to learn and understand Swing, and usually leads to the coder painting themselves into a corner.
