Swing Application Framework - First Public Version
By Roman Strobl on I 30, 2007
Hans Muller announced availability of first public version of the Swing Application Framework. You can give it a try and send feedback to Hans, the project is available on java.net:
Swing Application Framework aims to simplify Swing development by providing infrastructure for common tasks. The prototype provides infrastructure that's common to most desktop applications:
- Application lifecyle, notably GUI startup and shutdown.
- Support for managing and loading resources, like strings, formatted messages, images, colors, fonts, and other types common to desktop applications.
- Support for defining, managing, and binding Actions, including Actions that run asynchronously (in the "background").
- Persistent session state: support for automatically and selectively saving GUI state from one run of an application to the next.
