Solaris GUI

am a newbie to solaris. can some one tell me whether solaris v10.0 comes with GUI or not?
if there is GUI, how do we switch between GUI and commandline..

Yes it comes with GUI. It is using modified GNOME environment called Java Desktop System. It is enabled by default. If for any reason you have it disabled, you can enable it by running:
svcadm enable gdm2-login

To disable it:
svcadm disable gdm2-login
