Hello.

I want to make an simple application which will be used in some kind of "information point". It should handle the touch screen, but this is not important. I want to ask about what should I use to application like that ? Japplets and JPanels? I don't know what should I use to build desktop application ?

Thank you for your time

Best regards.

There are two areas you'll need to cover: Swing and deployment. Any time you have a question about the GUI, you'll want to post it in the Swing / AWT / SWT / JFace forum.

AFAIK touch screen devices generate mouse events, or, when using an onscreen keyboard, key events. Never worked with one though, so I could be wrong about that.
