The standard Java GUI library is called "Swing", which is built on, and still uses many classes from, an earlier version called "AWT". Swing classes have names that begin with a J, as in JFrame, JLabel, JButton etc. Swing GUIs are portable across all platforms where Java runs.
SWT was developed (by IBM I believe) to work directly with the Windows APIs, so it gives a perfect Windows look & feel. Howver, for the same reason, it's not portable across platforms.
If you are learning Java then Swing is the standard.
