Hi
How do you create a GUI front end in Java, for example a
menu screen to a system. I have jdk1.2. I will not be using anthing other than my text editor to write the code and the JDK.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure about your question, are u asking how to write GUI applications using Java? The answer is Java Swing.

Hi
What is Swing ?
The GUI will be run from Oracle 8i, will Swing be compatible
or will I need an add-on.
Thanks, Zahid.

I think you need to check the book reviews pick out a book and study up.

Swing is the name given to a bunch of classes in Java that are primarily concerned with GUI components and their behavior. You won't need any special add-ons to write a standalone application that uses Swing, but anybody that uses your program will have to have a Java Virtual Machine that supports Swing (1.1 or above). If you aren't distributing the JRE with your app and your users don't already have a JRE that supports Swing, then you will have a problem. There is an excellent Swing tutorial on Sun's web site. Look here to find it.
