Is Java's GUI an event-driven language like C#?

I'm also not sure what I mean by "Java's GUI". I know there's a javax.swing package. I don't know how extensive it is. I imagine it does not include everything since I've heard there's also QT, a commercial GUI package that's portable to numerous platforms. I imagine there would be no need for QT if javax.swing provided everything a user needed. How much of a GUI does javax.swing provide?

C# was born out of Java, so in many senses there is not much difference
between them

You can do everything you need with your interface using all soprts of events with Swing or even with older AWT toollkit.
So you should not worry aboput it - the main difference bvetween Java and C# is that java is really multiplatform
and the same class file will run on different platforms

QT can have some advantages:

but you may be sure there are great numbers of java programmers who created a lott of Java programs
with great GUI never used any QT
