Hello navdeep thakur,

Welcome to JavaRanch. Though both are used to deal with UI (User Interface) Components, Swings are of stand-alone applications and JSF (Java Server Faces) are being used in web-applications.

I hope now you can take a call based on your requirement.

Hi Navdeep,

As you stated that you want to convert a VB application in Java and you have 2 choices.

If you want to convert the VB application into a Java Web Application then you should go for JSF (Java Server Faces).

And if you want to convert the VB application into a Java Stand Alone Application then you should go for Swing. Although Swing have different libraries which are available for VB, you can look for rich third party libraries. SOme of them are free.

I hope you got my view.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
