The advanced Java forum isn't quite right, so I've moved this to the intermediate forum for you.

It all depends on what you mean by 'im kinda new at java'. Have you written any Java programs ? If you're comfortable with the basics of Java, then you need to look at Swing (Java GUI API).
The best place to start is the Java tutorials. There's stuff for complete beginners there and there is also a Swing tutorial.

So you mention your website. Let's start there. Tell us what technologies you're already using. JSPs? Servlets? Applets? A database? None of the above?
