    No that's not a problem. I appreciate the responses and the attempt to help haha.

    I'm not exactly bad at Java but I need to understand how to develop the architecture of the software. I was reading up on development patterns and realised the majority of patterns can be applied to the majority of languages; web and desktop software does differ slightly in how its implemented, however.

    I was more interested not so much on what functions do what because as any programmers who's been writing software for a long time knows - that comes with time and experience. I was more interested in the best practices of building a piece of software's foundations up to its GUI.

    I actually dusted my Java skillz off again in 2008 to do some Android dev, but only for a couple months, and only with Android.

    For what it's worth, the last book I picked up was for VB6. Language-specific books are really unnecessary, as there are plenty of free resources available to learn the semantics. Sounds like you'd be best served picking up a good book on OO methodology. While you're at it, I suggest SSQL for Smarties - probably the best tech book I've ever read. Absolute necessity if you're gonna work with DBs.

    OO Methodology sounds exactly what I'm looking for. Have you got any books you could recommend for this? And is Joe Celko the author of SQL for Smarties?

    Yeah, Celko. He's the SQL guru. No on the OO thing. Search Amazon for the best rated book on that topic. Should be fine.
