If you want to learn building SWING GUIs have a look at www.jeasy.de. JEasy is an application designer for JAVA using JAVA 2 with SWING components. The main concepts are to store all GUI components in an XML file, to use Layout Managers for presentation at runtime and to use XML-messages for serialization of forms. All GUI components and messages with their properties are defined inside the JEasy repository. A preview shows at once what you have done. New in 1.6: - automation script api for testing - JEasy Client/Server classes for internet and local connection over http with XML - dynamic tables and panels Please download form www.jeasy.de An example application in source code shows how to define nice forms and how to write code using jeasy api. Have fun
