I have near to zero experience building GUIs with Java, so I want to hear your opinion about what some people say: "Friends don't let friend do Swing"

By the way, I read about a tool (I don't remember its name) to render Swing applications using javascript, so they can be displayed on the web... have you heard of that? Actually, I suspect that WebQuery uses that tool.

What do you think about Swing?

If you want to use the X-Windows protocol directly from RPG apps then take a look at

Interesting, but no - I just wanted to see if the JVM on the AS/400
included the complete X11 graphics library, and as the video shows it does.

I have no desire to code plain X11, but if this means that an AS/400 JVM
can display directly to something without needing to create images to a
web application or similar, it is interesting for us. Just use Swing
and that is it :)
