I've got to build a graphical interface, composed by a full screen window with four tabular grids that show data coming from a remote object (CORBA Orbacus), some buttons, two or three menus, perhaps a few stuff more.
It's a standalone application on desktop (over Windows XP or Vista PC), neither Internet nor browsers involved: the user fires the application with a double click and begins to work.
Nothing really tricky, but I want to create a good, handy application, designed for every kind of users, easy to use.
I've little experience in designing Java GUI (I've got a deep experience with MS Visual Studio, C#).
My question is:
what type of project and wizard do I have to select ?
I saw File-->New-->Other-->Window Builder proposes several choices:
eRCP UI, GWT UI, SWT UI, XWT UI, Swing Designer with Application Window.
As far as I'm concerned, eRCP isn't the case, it's suitable for smartphones.
GWT is web-oriented, so I'm going to eliminate it.
SWT, XWT and Swing App Window seem to be good for my job...
which should I use ???
Can anybody give me an advice ?
Thanks a lot
