Hi guys,

Its been 3 year since i was in touch with JAVA.
Many things have changed since then. I know its hard for me to get in track soon. I hope you guys will help me find the exact track.
To begin with i have downloaded netbean 6.8 IDE.
I was going through some of training materials provided on netbean's official site .I decided to start with Desktop Application Development.

but to my surprise i noticed that SUN SWING framework is no longer developed and will not become part of the official Java Development Kit as was originally planned.
reference:

netbeans.org /kb/ docs/ java / gui-db.html

Can any body please guide me through Latest technology in Desktop application development.

Hi,

your link is broken. As for desktop developement, check this tutorial. It uses swing and NetBeans.

Swing has been part of the JRE and JDK since Java 1.2, which was released in 1998. Are you facing an actual problem using Swing?

I think Pinga is referring the Swing Application Framework. I mistook the two as well in the past.

IS javaFX a new trend in desktop application development?
Is that a reason why oracle/sun not promoting Swing application framework?
