Advantages of Swing / J2EE App vs. Terminal Based App

    I am in the process of developing an application in Swing / J2EE as an
    alternative to an application that is terminal based (like Edit in
    MS-DOS etc).

    I am aware of the benefits intuitively, but would be interested to see
    if anyone has material that makes an objective case for a swing based UI
    vs terminal based.

    Swing is part of J2SE. However, the terminal I/O capabilities of Java
    are so bad that you can't do anything more complex than scrolling
    pick-a-number user interfaces without platform-specific 3pp libraries.
