I spent the whole day today working on my new GUI...it is a pretty big project, and I think it will be taking me a while to complete. Fortunately, one of the other interns, Jacob, who knows Java, helped me along by showing me a plug-in for Eclipse (the code-editing software I'm using) which makes setting up GUIs a heck of a lot easier. Essentially it is a GUI for creating GUIs - I just arrange manually the different components of my GUI on the application screen. I do still have to do a lot of actual coding (to make those components do anything), but it still makes my job a lot easier.
