hi,
I went through this forum to find the suggestion about the books. Only few threads discussed, and some are not related to Swing. Could please recommend one or two of most valuable books for beginner (or little deeper).
Thanks

I have the Java Swing book form O'Reilly, and I think it's pretty good.

The O'reilly book is kind of tough to read, I think. But it's big and very thorough. It's probably the book to get, if you only get one. I've usually needed to supplement it with other sources, though. That sam's book online looks good. Core advanced Swing covers documents (RTF, HTML, etc.) and drag and drop very thoroughly and clearly...

Try "The Definitive Guide To Swing For Java2" by John Zukowski prublished by APress. It contains many snippets which you can borrow and modify to fit your own needs.
