This question has been asked many times and I have gone through most of them. Most of these questions are old and don't include any new platforms for developing desktop applications.
I need to develop a basic desktop application with CRUD functionality with Sqlite or MySQL database. I used to work with Java (Swing) but the Swing JSR has been withdrawn and Netbeans has dropped Swing Application Framework.
I need to learn a new technology for developing desktop applications (preferably platform independent). So far I have looked into following technologies.
Titanium Desktop (Now called TideSDK) : This is good but some advance PHP features aren't supported and its full of bugs.
QT : It looks promising and have great features but I couldn't find any book on the latest version QT 5. All the books on QT are 4 - 5 years old an written for QT 4.
Are there any other technologies which I can use for developing desktop applications? and add it to my skill set?
Thanks for your help and sorry if this question is too general.
