    Default Java and graphics ! Help

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to create an electronic simulation software, the user could choose electronic parts and connect them in the work area with a drag & drop feature, I don't know if java + Netbean can do it, if yes is there any tutorials guidelines ? if no which language/software can do it ?

    I would really appreciate your help.

    Thx

    If you don't know how to start, your best bet is to go through the Swing tutorials: Trail: Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing (The Java™ Tutorials)

    Thank you for your reply Kevin.

    I will explain the problem in other words:

    I would like to create a software that allow the user to draw piping & instrumentation diagram for the oil & gas industry. As I don't have any programming skills for the moment I am looking for the right tool language that I have to learn to build such software.

    In other words once the software created the user will choose from the equipment symbols list ( see pic1 ) and will create a drawing (see pic2 ) using a drag & drop feature.

    My question: is java able to do something like this ? if yes what should I learn exactly ? if no I would really apreciate if you tell me what language can do it ?

    Thank you !

    Yes, most definitely.

    ... if yes what should I learn exactly ?
    1. General Java programming
    2. Design patterns, and in particular the MVC or model-view-control pattern
    3. One or more GUI libraries such as Swing for stand-alone programming
