CS 3041 - Using Java for UI Building

The CS 3041 programming project may be programmed using Java.

Java has associated libraries that enable interface building.

A description of the language and its associated interface can be found in Gosling, Arnold & Holmes, and in other similar texts.

Prof Pollice says: Swing is probably the most used for standard Java. If the students use the NetBeans IDE, there is an easy-to-use (according to some definition) builder. NetBeans should be available on the CCC machines.

Prof Heineman says: This NetBeans tutorial might help.

Supplemental Material: Additional information about Java GUI building can be found on the web:

One or more of the course Assistants will be prepared to offer some assistance with Java during office hours. Ask your technical questions early, otherwise the responses may be slow.
