I teach programming at a local community college, and have been focused on C++ for the past two years. Getting back to Java at last and now see that the breakup between Eclipse and Oracle over the javax namespace has made a huge impact on the industry. I need to move all of my GUI and could use some quick suggestions on a couple of things.

  • Is there any (relatively) easy migration path for my old swing and awt code?
  • What is the new standard for GUI development?
  • What is the recommended textbook today for Java GUI development?

If you just want to create Java GUI code, Eclipse creates happily code for AWT and Swing. You'll need SWT and friends only if you want to create plug-ins for the Eclipse framework.

The WindowBuilder gives you options to choose whether you like to use AWT and friends or SWT and friends.
