Hello,

I'm somewhat new to Java, but was working with it for non-GUI programs ...
But now I need to write a client application ... and I struggling with swing ...
I've read some threads in forums, questions and articles about different GUI alternatives for Java. But I didn't manage to have a clear understanding how to do that ... (Maybe I'm tired .. )

My question is: Is it possible to write a Flash GUI to communicate with Java classes, interfaces ... ? The interaction would be on the client machine ...

Details ...

- This application would run on the client machine, with lots of database lookups on the server.
- I was reading and I decided to use RMI to do that ... (don't know if it is the best option ... it seems to me)
- The app could run in the browser (if there are advantages on that), I don't need access to the filesystem, maybe just write one file or two inside the sandbox

Thanks in advance,

Well ... I'm new to Java ... I used to write for Delphi - Pascal (easy way to build GUIs) and now ... I was struggling with swing, downloaded NetBeans and was reading about how modify the appereance of Swing components ... but when I read some articles about this possible integration, I'd like to give it a try ... because I thinik an interface in Flash would be a nice-looking one ...

Thanks, I'll take a look at the article ... I'll come back ...

My programming trajectory is similar to yours, although i made the switch several years ago now. NetBeans will give you a GUI builder that comes *some* way to approaching that of Delphi's VCL.

Thanks guys ...

I'd left open in case more answers showed up ....

I was searching the internet and I'll try to implement this client software using Flex - Actionscript accessing POJO on the server ... if I manage to and performs good ... that'll be nice ... if not ... I'll try swing ... I  don't know but swing is a little ackward for me .... but I'll try later ...

Thanks for the answers ...
