Dear All,

I want to start dekstop application in swing. I am not expert in it to make swing application. I just want to know which framework I should use as we use MVC framework, or any other framework for web-application. and want some details regarding this. so, can get some ideas.

My application concept is

There would be one form in a window. It requires to be filled up. after click on submit, I want to generate pdf or word file to print out. Its simple application, but, need help. and should I use only JDBC, or can I also use hibernate with dekstop application ?

Hibernate works fine in a desktop app.

As to MVC, Swing implements that, for the most part - what do you think this framework should do that Swing doesn't do out of the box?
