Hello Everyone!!!
I have asked to make a desktop application to manage accounting detail of some construction company. So, I am thinking of making it using Swing. But till now i have always worked in making web applications in servlet, jsp, struts2 ..
Can you guys please guide me the steps to create swing application in MyEclipse.
Thanks!!

Just code it without any user interface builder. Go through the tutorials and you should be able to get along just fine.

Thanks for replying Rob...will try to do as you said ... I have a question in my mind ... So far what i have studied about swing is that it just provide you a User Interface for a desktop application (just like html provides you for web applications)...Then what would be the request/response etc .. i mean what would be the server end of it ? what do i ned to study for it ... Networking ? Event Handling ?
Cheers!!!

There is no client-server model in Swing. There are components (some with models), and these can interact through event handlers (e.g. an ActionListener on a JButton).

Try going through http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/uiswing/ and see if you have any more questions.
