Today, news for devotees of Java Swing.
The SwingX project, an incubator for new components that may show up in the Java SE platform in he future has reached another milestone, so its a good time to check that out.
Also an interesting posting today on using the new Resource Framework piece of the ongoing Swing Application Framework API, slated for JDK 7. I hope there will be a part 2 and 3 that will cover the new way to use resource injection to completely separate out not only component property values but the mechanism to initialize them too.
Swing is powerful and got a new look and feel called Nimbus in the upcoming Java SE 6u10 release...but you know Swing's not only in Java SE, right ? Its been formally subset as AGUI for high end Java ME devices and JavaFX desktop profile is using some of its popular components, as is LWUIT for smaller Java ME phones. And some \*really\* cool apps are using it on Facebook.
Just a few other places Swing's swung.
