Hi,

I've created my very first HelloWorld app that opens a panel with Hello World in it, as follows:



It's not much I know as it's pretty much a copy and paste from http://www.vogella.com/articles/SWT/article.html,
with some minor changes. How would I 'unit test' this Hello World app out?

Now I've heard there's Swing, AWT and SWT. I just used SWT. Which should I use for GUI applications?

Also, and probably related, I was wondering with regards to building complex applications (like ERPs, etc), is there an easier way
of doing this other than creating each widget on the display one widget at a time? I'm sorry if this sounds like a stupid
(and probably impatient) question.

Thanks for your help and clarifications.

Edmund

Did you try JavaFX 2? A new tooling support from Eclipse and as usual Netbeans has support for it.
