I'm working on a personal project that is an address book, I have all the underlying code/classes that can extract the details from a database, but I would like to add a front end/user interface to the system in order to make it more user friendly.

The package has been built in Netbeans, so I suppose using JFrame will be the best option, but I've heard about javaFX and I'm wondering if this would be an option.

For starters I have a straight forward class called person that has methods to get personal details such as name, dob, email, mobile and a class called address, as multiple people have the same address.

I would like to pull these details into a display window,  Hopefully this is not to complex to answer here?

I know how to create and to add features to a JFrame but I'm unsure how to link in the existing methods

something like this you can use as a reference
http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/J2SE/Desktop/javadb/
http://www.beginner-java-tutorial.com/java-addressbook.html

Infact, if you just search <<java swing address book>>, it should give you ample number of links to be used as reference.

Please let me know if there is something i am missing
