Hi, I have an update.
We are scrapping our Java Swing Front-end. because it is just not quite there. It has some quirkiness that makes it not usable by end-users. If you ahve ever seen a Swing front-end, you will notice how easily you can make it mess up, through hitting the Enter Key, Mouse Clicks, and Tabs. You can make more than one component have Focus at the same time.
That along with no good Reporting Tools using Swing and having any speed, makes Swing just a slight bit short on the practical Business Application.
So what is? who knows? I am trying to use JIntegra with VB, so the front-end can be VB, but I am not sure if it will be a ble to do everything.
So I take back all my other posts. Someday soon, Swing will be ready, but until they get the little bugs out, we are stricken to look for another alternative.
We still are using EJBs to access the Oracle Database, and to store the Business Logic.
I hope Swing is there soon, because for the most part, I had fun programming with it.

Heres an update. FOr those who wanted to know about an IDE for java I think Visual Cafe 4.0 is a good tool. If you think that java applications on JVM are too slow you may also create win32 executables using this IDE( if you are using windows). Some bugs are yet to be fixed. The patches should be out very soon.
