Depends which edition you buy. You'll find details of the book on our book reviews page.

The advanced book doesn't go further than Java 1.4, so RowFilter, RowSorter and such are not present. It does handle JTree, JTable and JList, and a bit of JEditorPane and JTextPane. There is also a complete chapter on AWT, mostly Java2D (using Graphics2D) and printing.

If you want a book for Swing specifically, I wouldn't recommend it. If you want a book for Java in general that happens to include Swing, it's pretty good.

Oh! My bad.
I used it when I was learning 1.2. I thought they would be having editions for each version.

The latest version does handle Java 6, but none of the extra Swing features.
