here's the JTable tutorial, which should help with the GUI part

you need to understand that Swing is single-threaded and everything (painting, listeners etc) is done on that thread (EDT).
if you try to retrieve database data on that thread, the gui will freeze until data-retrieval is completed, so you must do the
db stuff in a separate thread, or SwingWorker.
I agree. Here's the link:
