Hey Guys,

I am thinking of doing the OCJD exam (only thinking at this stage!) and would like to become competent with Java Swing. Can anybody here recommend a good text book (preferably with an accompanying electronic version of the book)

the swing tutorial from the oracle site
is probably the most up-to-date reference.

there were a couple of good books some
years back, but a lot has changed since
they were released.
