I am new to java, so please be nice.

I am trying to make an application in Netbeans, i know the basics of how to use the program but get a little stuck when it comes to programming.

At the moment i am trying to get a button to open up another window once it has been clicked.

Can anyone help me? or suggest any good sites which can help me to program.

RTFM? Go online and look at Oracle's Java documents. It is all covered there. This is not a simple question to answer here without you posting the code with which you have tried to accomplish this.


I'd recommend getting used to programming command line programs in Java before hopping into GUI's. I recommend this because a lot of the underlying functionality is key to writing a good program. If you start at GUI's, you tend to focus more on interface design and less on the program functionality.

If you choose to take this advice, have a look at the following:
Object Oriented Design
Java Types
Java Collections (ArrayList, HashMap, HashSet, Array)
Error Handling

These will give you a good foundation to writing Java programs.

Hope this was helpful
