    Developing a Desktop Application to interact with PHP

    Im developing a CMS and want to build some type of desktop GUI that can run on atleast windows, and *nix if possible..

    I think JAVA is the best solution for this,
    What I plan to do, is have a set of scripts on the webserver, and have this java app connect to these individual files depending on what option the user wants to carry out, then the data is sent to the desktop client, and is displayed, and this would allow them to add/edit/delete/list content and such..

    Would Java be best for this? Or something else?

    Also, I would need to learn Java, can you recommend and books that would help me with this task?

    Thanks for your time,

    Yes I have, but I don't think it's really what I want..

    I want this program to be able to run on a person's computer regardless of what they have installed..

    I know if I write something in java, I can include the JRE build in with my script, like Zend does with there Studio...
