Swing Application Framework - First Public Version



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:

https://appframework.dev.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.
NetBeans 6 will include GUI support for Swing Application Framework inside of the GUI buider. Together with Swing databinding this will make Swing development a lot easier. Hopefully this will lead to more Java applications and larger adoption of Java on the desktop.
