    Question I'm new to Java, help on where to start on making my own application?

    Okay, I'm pretty comfortable with the basics. I was learning C++ before Java and was pretty decent at it, so it wasn't that hard to learn. I understand the whole OOP and classes, and having class hierarchies stuff pretty well. I also know the basic syntax. So I can make a console program do just about anything I want it to (Like make text based games, calculators for all different things, ect.) I guess from here I should start adding a GUI to my programs. How would I go about this? What should I learn next if not how to build a GUI? My searching google with "Making gui java programming" isn't turning up much useful. Set me in the right direction?

    You really need to try more searches than that,

    Look what this returns:
    gui programming java - Google Search

    Here's like the first 2 results, more than enough to get you started:
    An Introduction to Java GUI Programming - CodeProject
    Trail: Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing (The Java™ Tutorials)

    If you have it already get http://netbeans.org/, it comes built in with easy-to-get-started project wizards and gui builders.
