    Default How Dynamic is Java?

    I had been considering migrating from php to java since I had noticed one or two shortcomings + had read a lot about java being robust, flexible, dynamic & the top developmental platform.

    Having gone through the introduction to java GUI & JavaDB development, with PHP/ HTML etc I was able to freely design whichever interface & report layout I had in mind, just that they were limited to the web browser.

    How do you design reports with java (using the Netbeans IDE)? Are the java interfaces customizable or limited to the basic layout I get from Netbeans? Can you create or embed a tabular subform (like you can with even VB for applications) e.g. Main form showing client details with a subform showing a list of that client's transactions with your company?

    Which tutorials do you recommend?

    Do not use the GUI builder.
    That's step 1.

    What exactly are you trying to write?
    Web app?
    Desktop?
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    What Tolls said.

    The first result for googling "java tutorials" are where you should start, and they answer all of your questions.

    What exactly do you mean by "dynamic"?

    Thanks. I suppose it was the GUI builder that had been limiting me. Will study more on hard-coding the interface.
    By "dynamic" I meant "mallable" i.e. Does it give the users the ability to convert their imaginations into working programs?

    Are you talking graphically or what?
    You can write most things in it...

    Yes and yes. As you get more familiar with the different layouts and whatnot at your disposal, it will get easier to go from your brain to a working program. But it probably won't happen overnight, so patience is a virtue.
