Both should work.  IMHO, if you are new to both, I always tend to go with the newer version of technology so that when your learning curve is over you don't have to immediately switch versions because you are way behind.  Once you learn the environment, you will be using the latest tools, etc.

Do you know if either ganymede or gaileo is newer?  BTW: I've been trying to follow your advice about the graphical gui maker.  That is why I'm trying to get the newest version of eclipse.  I've been doing this since early Friday.  

Also, Eclipse is new to me.  I've been trying to use it to learn java.  I used to be a C++ coder who used Qt and so I understand the idea of java but I've only coded in it for a year   I found it much easier to code after I learned my editor ( vi ) better and that is why I'm trying to learn Eclipse.  That's probably enough extraneous information.

I am using Ganymede and it is version 3.4.x.  Gaileo is version 3.5.x.

Here is a link to the eclipse tutorial, maybe it will also be helpful in getting you started:

IMO there is not much of learning curve with eclipse. If you
are learning Java, I will advise you to still use vi, as
eclipse or any other IDE hides a lot of stuff from programmers.

For creating graphics, you should use visual editor (ve) plugin,
