Hi,
I am basically working on server side so used to technologies like jsp, html etc.. but i want to develop some aui using swings. I tried in sun web site regarding this and found out some info but how to dtart off with. I can use my IDE and plugin to get some UI ready but i dont want to do so. The problem is when arranging the components. Can someone suggest me so as to how to get started and then build some good UI.

Thanks and Regards,
Pradeep

Start really small, with a simple JFrame, then gradually add components.
Learn about the Layout types, eg Flow, Border, Grid, Box, Card, GridBag and Group. You will probably use a favourite subset of the Layouts once you get used to them.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
