Client-Side Improvements in Java 6 and Java 7 Article on OTN

Java Champion Josh Marinacci has a new article titled “Client-Side Improvements in Java 6 and Java 7” up on otn/java’s "Developer Spotlight". The article takes a tour of Swing, looks at installation, and explores substantial improvements to the client and desktop parts of Java SE 6 and Java SE 7, including the applet plug-in, the Java Deployment Toolkit, shaped and translucent windows, heavyweight-lightweight mixing, and Java Web Start.

Marinacci concludes: “Finally, desktop Java apps benefit from many of the general improvements in Java SE 7. The improved file I/O APIs offer fine-grained control over file permissions, symbolic links, and notification of file changes, plus the ability to have the operating system move and copy files at native speed.

With the improvements in Java SE 7 and a new Java language version of JavaFX available this summer, things are looking bright for client-side Java.”
