Hi all, I have some basic knowledge in Swing by reading the book Head First Java. Now I want to learn some advanced conceptsin swing. So I have planned to buy a good book for swing. Before buying the book I want to know which one will be good that will have more explanation with example codings.

Sun's JFC SWing Tutorial - Kathy Walrath, is an excellent tutorial style book. you can read all of the pages at sun's site, but much better to get the book
Swing 2nd Edition - Matthew Robinson, is an excellent reference style book. there was a link in the last day or 2 posted here, where you can download the 1st edition
Swing - O'Reilly, I haven't read this , so read the comments at amazon - but generally O'Reilly has the reputation for quality books.
I have the first 2 books, and use them regularly - I can generally find what I'm after in one or the other. If O'Reilly puts out a 1.5 version of their book, I will get that also.
Recommendation - get them all.
There is a book review forum here - may be worth a search
