Java Swing (GUI) Programming: From Beginner to Expert
What you'll learn
- Learn how to write GUI (graphical user interface) applications in Java
- Understand the Java Swing framework
- Discover how to create database applications
This course teaches you how to create desktop and web-based applications using Java Swing, Java's built-in user interface toolkit. Each tutorial is fairly self-contained; but we'll also build two complete applications step by step along the way, so you can choose either to work through the whole course or to dip in and out.
Among other things we'll look at nearly all Swing widgets, we'll take a look at JDBC for database access, the graphics API, model-view-controller (MVC) architecture, serialization for saving data, the listener-event model and even basic animation.
When you finish the course, you'll be an advanced Swing developer, capable of creating complex and scalable Swing GUI applications.
Who this course is for:
- Java beginners who are OK with learning new stuff rapidly
- Fluent Java programmers who want to learn desktop programming in Java
After working as a software developer and contractor for over 14 years for a whole bunch of companies including CSC, Proquest, SPSS and AT&T in the UK and Netherlands, I decided to work full-time as a private software trainer. After spending four years in the beautiful city of Budapest, Hungary and a year in Berlin, I now live in my home town of Derby, UK.
