Help with Java project - beginner

jiiins2 asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I would like to create a simple application in Java that takes some input from the user (via GUI), establishes a ssh session and launches Firefox Portable. The ssh session should be terminated when FireFox is closed.

I noticed that the TOR Browser Bundle (https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser-details.html.en#build) does something quite similar.

I have some experience in VB.NET and can read through Java code, but I've never built an application myself. So what is the best way to structure this application? Or, where should I start?
