Hi guys, - I hope you can assist here,

basically I'm a good way through developing a Poker game which I've been developing just for fun(!?) and also to improve my skills, which it has done substantially. The logic involved with some of the hand comparisons and the evaluations of the winner is pretty complex.
Nonetheless, once I've finished the threaded timer to control the regulation of rising blind levels, and the betting mechanics for the Computer players I'll be looking to start creating the front end and this is where I'm a little confused.

Obviously for what I want, neither swing or AWT would be sufficient, so I guess the gap in my knowledge is how to integrate my back end code with a web front end. Is this possible? - What options exist for integration? just pure CSS / JS, or would Angular.js be viable? I'm looking to utilise some ready made images as graphics with maybe some minor animation effects.

Sorry for the sweeping question, I have searched the web quite a bit and everything I find seems to revolve around Swing and thus I'm no further forward in knowing a good way to start the integration.

Once I have an idea of what is possible I'll probably be able to begin experimenting

Thanks in advance,

- Andy

JavaFX has some nifty ways of doing animation and 3D representations. I would look at using JavaFX with Java 8.
