Welcome to the Ranch.

Are you trying to learn Netbeans or Swing?
If you wish to learn Swing, try hand coding without any IDE drag and drop features.

Thanks a lot for the reply.
I'm currently preparing for OCPJP 6.
While I'm learning these theories, I like to make some little softwares.
That's why I asked about some recommendations.
Isn't it good to work with application development kits in netbeans?
I need some advices and useful web sites.

If you are preparing for SCJP, I would suggest strongly against using any IDE at all. Hand coding and command line is the best way to learn the language.

Have you got any books? I started off with Core Java and found it very useful. Others have a similar good experience with the Head First series.
You can check out http://download.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/uiswing/ for an online tutorial for Swing.

You can use various tools to generate the code for you, but it's always good to know what it really does. To understand that you need to know how to create things manually.

For step by step tutorials I would suggest The Guidebook - Swing Tutorials

Also you could visit Oracles Swing tutorials Oracle

Thanks a lot for your posts.
I find it very attractive using The Guidebook-Tutorials.
I follow Oracle tutorials too.
Yes, I agree with you Maneesh. I'm using Notepad++ and command line for my coding and compiling.
I'm using Kathy Sierra's book for my studies.
But the questions there in the book are not enough. I'm trying to find some more past exam questions.
If you can help me in this regard, it'll be a great help for me too.

Thanks.

If your aim is to get OCJP certified, we have a separate forum where OCJP stuff is discussed.

We have lots of forums including Beginners, General and of course the Swing forum.
If you surf these forums, reading the questions discussed will definitely help you gather more knowledge. And if you have questions of your own, you can of course ask
