Why? Or rather, why would you want to use Java to program a tool
intended to be run from within the command line, as opposed to a
program with a GUI?
Java is by no way a language to develop only GUI applications. In fact
Swing? Note that you are the first to mention Swing,
specifically (to my recollection). This could be done
using Swing, the AWT, ..or SWT.
...classes are only a small part from the whole Java
API (and the rest of the API is not there to serve GUI applications
There are a lot of comments I could make at
this point, but I feel the most appropriate is
At last count, 19/20 jobs were servlet/JSP based,
with strong implicaiton of a HTML based thin client,
as opposed to any sort of 'rich client GUI'.
(And that is not even considering the Java
applications that run in headless environments/
entirely from the command line..)
