Java Swing (GUI) Programming: From Beginner to Expert

Learn how to create desktop and Internet GUI Java programs and take your Java programming to the next level.

  Enroll in Course

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.

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. I moved to the beautiful city of Budapest, where I turned Cave of Programming from just a bunch of articles into what you see today. After spending a year in Berlin, I moved back to my roots and I now live in Derby, UK.
