Hi According to me yo can go for "JFC Unleashed". It gives you a detailed picture of using availiable swing components as well as it also gives you an idea on how to go create custom components. BEST OF LUCK.
Hi, As Avi said Core JFC by Kim Topley is inarguably the best book on Swing. I would like to mention few other books :- 1. Core Swing Advanced Programming by Kim topley (If u r desiging text editors or web browsers, this book is a must) 2. Graphic Java 1.2 Mastering JFC Vol 1 (AWT) by David Geary 3. Graphic Java 2 Mastering JFC Vol 2 (Swing) by David Geary (About Book No. 2 and 3 - Both books are from Sun Microsystems Press and the author is designing GUIs since 1984) Well there is one more book by him Vol 3 Advanced Swing but it's not available in India hence i haven't used it. 4. Java Swing Oreilly pub. is better for exercises Hope this helps
