Hi, I am web developer, and I am interest in kind of GUI programming, particularly this :
I find some job offers related to "Investment Banking / Credit Risk", where they are looking for Java 2 EE developer, and so on...I suppose that that systems are built on Java, but I am wondering what is used as a GUI for administrators on such a systems? Is that also in Java (Swing, AWT...), or the GUI is done in languages like C, or C++ or whatever else?
I am going to do some "java real-time" programming, because it is essential in businesses like that, and I need to know in what is done a GUI.
Thanks

JEE is mostly about server-side systems, not so much about desktop GUIs. Often the front-end will be a web site. As to what might be a desktop frontend, that depends on the company and is impossible to say in general. Could be Swing, could be native Windows, could be something else, but the first two are most likely.

Hi Ulf, I know what J2EE is used for, but I was only wondering about GUI faced by employee. I believe its a desktop application and not web site, but maybe I am wrong. And According to that thoughts, ( if it's true that desktop application is a GUI) I was wondering is it done in Swing or another language? But if you know that such an applications are done as a sites, ok I do not mind that
Just ask to know in what is done bank employee GUI they use to provide a service to customers.
Thanks

More and more companies are switching to web-based applications for their internal processes.

As I said, it depends on the company; no general statements are possible, just trends.

Ok. I know that in my bank, employee use a gui based interface not web. But can I conclude premise form the ads like :"If they do not specify some different language, and do not specify usage of Swing, probably companies employees use web based gui, using browser"?
Is that thought ok, what do you think? I mean if they do not specify first two requirements, it's high probability for my correct conclusion?
And then if I have a 100 ads of this type, I could find general trend, of interface integration used by employees, right?

That would not be a logical conclusion. Not mentioning technology A does not imply that technology B is being used if technologies C through K are also possible. You can't draw conclusions about specific companies based on trends. I also fail to see why it's necessary to draw any conclusion about this at all.

Let say I want to do do some real-time programming, in order to be qualified to apply on mentioned or some related position. I believe that some user interface I need to know. That is why I asked what technology is in the greater preponderance, used for employee interface. If that is 80 % percent in all banking applications based on "some" statistics a c++, I need to know that, am I? I need to know what would be expected of me to as a gui in that job position, that's all. Do you maybe have some empiric advice, based on experience about this issue, which will clear my doubts?
Thanks
