    Java has many GUI features. There are also tools that help you put together your GUI.

    For example, the Netbeans IDE is the one I use. Although I use Eclipse to code, Netbeans, hands down, has an excellent GUI maker, which I use to build all my GUIs.

    If you want to display graphs, look into downloading the JFreeChart library. As for building GUIs, I recommend that you avoid using a GUI builder but instead do this by hand especially when you are in the learning phase.

    for learning it is best to start practicing by hand. but if you want to be productive I think you should use a gui builder. The best I know is a netbeans one
