That answer depends, in part, on your previous programming/development experience.

Using JSP requires that you become familiar/adept at other technologies and infrastructure components: HTML, the Servlet API, possibly JavaScript, a Servlet/JSP container, J2EE application packaging, etc. In this panoply of technologies, Java is but one component, and not necessarily the most prominent.

Swing UI development, while it also requires becoming familiar with the Swing components, is really all Java programming. The implementation/test cycle tends to be much more rapid. You don't need much more than an editor, compiler, and interpreter to get going. There are a number of good tutorials, including the free on-line Java Tutorial at JavaSoft, to lead you through learning to program in Java and develop a UI in Swing. Granted, there are plenty of advanced topics in Swing development too. But by the time you have to crack those open, you'll have Java under your belt.

Just my two cents worth.

Other questions to ask yourself is: who will be using the application/webservice?  What kind of access do they have to the internet? Ports, ect.  Will they need to intall the JRE if they don't already have one installed?  What web-browsers are most likely to be prevalent (if it is an old one it may not support all the scripting languages.)

Beyond just swing it may be helpful to take a look at JavaWebStart.  its is all at http://java.sun.com

Enjoy and best of luck!

I would recommend using Struts with is a MVC (Model View Controller) framework for developing web applications.  It uses JSPs and Servlets and does much of the architecture for you.

Find out more at http://jakarta.apache.org/struts

Obviously, JSP is faster to develop as its as simple as developing HTML pages. Writing Swing comps may take up time. As u r new to JAVA, the JSP will be a better option if u r going for a webbased application. If u want to go for a Product then Swing may be useful.
