Hi preethi
Its good to be good at basics before you step into something furthur. If you have a knowledge as to write code for applets, it would be really easy to understand how swing concepts work. However, if you know the basic stuff and you're a fast learner, I guess it should'nt be a problem.
For links, there's nothing to beat java.sun.com, search for JFC swing tutorials. Books => OReilly, JFC Swings by Satyaraj Pantham is really good.
Hope this helps you.

Hi,
I think you can use swing without knowledge about applets, but then you should programm some applications. It is important to knwow something about the structure of java. In addition to that it is good to have some basics in AWT.
Bye

Here is a very good book about GUI development in Swing. Applets are not a requirement to begin writing applications, but you need to understand the Java event model and probably a basic understanding of AWT.
