    Question Designing a GUI based solution- Suggestion required

    Dear forum,

    I am planning to design a GUI based solution with the following criteria

    a) It will be run on a windows based system
    b) Tables and other data will be there on many linux nodes. It can be in the form of sql tables, files etc
    c) I need graphical display of these nodes on the GUI application
    d) Additionally a map (geographical) display of modes with topology discovery is required.

    I am at the start of doing this project, wanted to know which java technology to use like Swing or AWT or EJB or J2EE.

    I dont have any specific criteria as such it should be a web based solution or not. Even a stand alone solution such as clicking an ".exe" for launching this GUI on windows should be fine.

    Waiting for your early reply.

    Java application can run on any Windows platform, with the correct JRE version that your development based on.

    I don't have an idea what you mean by linux nodes, and sql tables..

    For graphical developments, use Swing not AWT. Lots of differences are there. Go the Suns' official web site and check the different.

    Cross-posting can frustrate anyone who tries to help you only to find out later that the same answer was given hours ago in a cross-posted thread. No one likes wasting their time, especially a volunteer. The polite thing to do would be to provide links in both cross-posts to each other.

    I strongly agreed with you lol. I'm not criticizing any such threads, but I don't need to spend my time.

    Default Thanks everyone for your suggestion

    Dear Forum,

    I am thankful for your suggestion. In future I will avoid posting in multiple forums as I agree to your thought box.
