This new version, written by Swing expert, Amy Fowler, boasts a slick GUI showcasing the Nimbus look and feel. This demo is visually beautiful and extensible, but what I really love is the new feature that allows you to view the code used to create and display the selected component. One half of a split pane displays the selected component and the other half shows the code. For some complex components, such as
JButton, a combo box allows you to choose exactly what snippet of code produces a particular effect.
You can obtain SwingSet3 from swingset3.dev.java.net.
(If, like me, are you a Mac OS X user, you need to be running the latest version of JDK 6 from Apple that runs only under Leopard.)
Check it out!
