C# and Java both are good languages they have similar structure too.

DATA BASES
***********
For database to include in java applications it has many Connectivity drivers,

JDBC is the Java DataBase Connectivity. It is used to connect database connectivity API s like ODBC (Open DataBase Connectivity)
JDBC is a layer of abstraction that allows programmer to choose any database. It allows you to change to a different database engine and to write to a single API.

It can work with many DB like MSAccess, SqlLite etc

GUI
******
There is no prob with GUI in Java
SWING and AWT are the packages for GUI and events in that.
It is very easy to work with SWING and AWT


Net Beans
**********
It is good tool for beginners to develop GUI.
But using such tools make your project heavy.
Net beans IDE is similar to Visual Studio. and it will not take much time to learn.
Another tool is eclipse.

for that you right Click the area where you want to implement the code
for example: if you want to get the data from the Text field textField1

Thus you made the interface, and now you have to code to interact with the interface.

for that you right Click the area where you want to implement the code and choose the option to "view source" or " edit code"( or something like that, i dnt remember)
for example: if you want to get the data from the Text field textField1
use String receivedString = textField1.getText();
