Does Sun provide a Databound api. For example, in MS Access you can create a form and then attach text fields to database fields. When you submit, the information gets written directly to those fields in the database tables.
I have created some java forms that write to tables and rather than getting the text from each field, and then writing an INSERT query, I would like to use databound objects, if Java provides them. Can you point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance,

Ah, the good old days of writing VB apps.

I'm not aware of any '100% standard' bindable AWT or Swing controls. Many IDE's provide custom controls (for example, I know that JBuilder does provide such controls).

But they still aren't as 'easy' to use as the M$ controls.
I agree. Here's the link:
