There are any number of choices, depending on your actual needs and skills.

It is basically used of rinternal office applications. I have to make it web based. And basically what is the GUI used for that?

Like I said, there are a whole bunch of options. Without knowing your actual requirements, the skillsets of the developers involved, or much of anything, it's impossible to give any useful advice. There's simple JavaScript-based solutions (jQuery, Prototype, MooTools, etc.), more "framework"-y solutions (Dojo, ExtJS, YUI), more Java-oriented solutions (GWT, JSF), full-on client environments (Flex/Flash, JavaFX, Silverlight, applets), and so on.

Forgive my ignorance but I havent used a front end application coding till now. So if you dont mind, since I consider myself as a starter, what should I start with looking through for to start with designing the front end...

I'm saying I don't know what a good choice would be, because I don't know your requirements. If you're leaning towards a JavaScript-based solution I'd start by learning basic HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and a JavaScript library of your choosing.
