A Graphical User Interface (GUI) is a user interface based on graphics i.e. icons, pictures, menus, etc. instead of just plain text, it uses a mouse as well as a keyboard as an input device.
GUI applications enable the users (especially naive ones) to interact with a system easily and friendly. This presentation is meant for the individual who has little or no experience in Java GUI programming.
Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later.
