Form a newbie's point of view, Java's Swing Libraries (gui stuff) are
pretty easy to get to grips with, if a bit big. They are also
incredibly well documented, and are distributed by sun with the core
language.

Compared to most python toolkits, they are approximately as complex,
but far better documented. The other good thing compared to python is
their integration at the language API level rather than as a
supplementary module. A quick look at the 1.6 swing tutorial will tell
you whether this is something you'd like to use:

hope this helps
