Swing, I don't know. Rich clients, definitely. I won't go on here because Chet and I already replied to that question in several threads on this forum. Go check out "Rich clients are so 90s" for instance.

Swing, I don't know.

Swing can't be used to build rich clients?
(sorry, but I'm not a desktop applications guru).

Er... that's not the question you asked, so that's not what Romain's answer meant. Of course Swing can be used to build rich clients. Otherwise, Filthy Rich Clients would be an awfully short and silly book.

Swing can be used to build rich clients, that's the point of our book. But I don't know how long Swing will survive, that's what I meant

John,

Fair enough, I didn't realize you weren't the original poster. But you seemed to be inferring something from Romain's answer to a completely different question...

Swing is for desktop application, and AJAx is technique which is work like swing on web (mean do operations without refreshing a page), but can you apply Ajax outside the web browser, of course you'll reply No.
