So i have made some Java applications but they are all console based. I am quickly learning that a program isnt considered a program anymore if it doesn't have some sort of GUI going on. I have looked into Java awt and swing before but get lost in all the classes and JPanels and Frames. I am wondering if there is 1 good book or something that someone can recommend that would show me how to take a console app that has all the logic of the app done and change the inputs and outputs to work the GUI instead of just the console. Thanks.

First an in my opinion one of the best resources still is the official tutorial: http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/
From there everything can develop itself.

It is not necessarily a tut that converts console to UIs but that's easy if you know hot to make your GUIs.
