    Hey guys i've decided it's time for me to learn another language. From what i gather swing is the java with the gui so thats what i want to learn. I really just need some people that can point me in the right direction and tell me why there are so many types of java (i think swing is just 1 like sub-catagorie). I downloaded the eclipse ide and i have the windowsbuilder pro addon installed. I only wrote 1 crazy simple little thing that has a button and counts how many times you click it, so i'm not a "complete" noob :/

    Personally, I use the NetBeans for compile Java applications for the platforms...

    You can download the latest in this website, and start reading some books and videos on YouTube...

    Java is an flexible language, with many features and muli-platform operated, the coding map looks as C#.

    thank you, i took a look at netbeans and i'm going to use it as it is better than eclipse. Thanks for ur reply

    Edit- after using netbeans for a while i seem to have trouble recreating many tutorials i find, i have since switched back to eclipse and many problems have disappeared
