Need help with swing app architecture

We are developing an application at work.. This would be my first large swing application, so I need some help coming up with the right architecture.

The app presents a swing GUI to the user. It connects to the IBM AS400 mainframe to retrieve data (by making Cobol calls/reading files/records using JTOpen and JDBC).

I am wondering about several different issues.

What is the best way to pass variables between panels? Most panels need AS400 and JDBC connections and perhaps some other env variables.

What is the best way to link panels together? Should there be a main driver class that manages them all? How is that usually done?

Any good resources/links for this?

Thank you.
