I'm looking to design a simple GUI for a java program on raspberry pi. I am not pleased with the drawbacks of JavaFX on pi.
I'd like to consider Swing or other GUI tools for java on the pi if and only if:
1) I don't need to download extra jars to get a swing program running. (libraries are no problem)
2) Swing GUI windows can actually run in windows. JavaFX "windows" cannot be re-positioned or closed. All desktop outside the window is black. Not ideal.
The internet is very sparse on details here. Any recommendation welcome. Python would be a better option for sure, but the guts of my program are already running in java.
