Course Description

This course will you teach you how to develop GUI with SWING API.

Swing API is set of extensible GUI Components to ease developer’s life to create JAVA based Front End/ Graphic User Interface (GUI) Applications.

Swing API is build upon top of AWT API and acts as replacement of AWT API as it has almost every control corresponding to AWT controls. Swing component follows a Model-View-Controller architecture. 

 

Objective

This class combines lecture with hands-on experience (50/50), and open ended discussion that will help the developer quickly understand Graphic User Interface (GUI) development and how properly to use SWING and DataBase.

How to avoid writing unresponsive GUI using SwingWorker.
