I am a beginner in Java. I want to learn GUI using Swing. Can I get some good references for it.

Story Behind::

I heard that Java Applet is outdated and no longer very much used. From then onward I am inclined towards learning Swing.

PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG.

Is it necessary to understand applets before going for swing??



And last one : Am i having excessive inclination towards swing OR have I used the word swing too many time.

If you want to learn Swing, my suggestion would be to start with the tutorials.

And to answer your other question: Yes, Applets are outdated.

I guess the real question here is: Do you want to write a GUI, or a browser-based application?

Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?
