"A fast-paced guide with deep technical coverage"
Swing has something for all Java audiences, but is mainly intended for experienced and advanced GUI developers. Each chapter begins with a discussion of relevant classes and interfaces, often interspersed with small example applications to demonstrate key features. The remainder is then devoted to extensive, real-world examples that are explained thoroughly and are often built on top of one another. These examples are the main thrust of this book and make up most of its content.
Each Swing component is covered in depth with several accompanying examples. The authors have also identified five areas of Swing that deserve significantly more attention than others due to their size and complexity:
the text package
the tree package
the table package
pluggable look and feel
Thus, you will find the examples of this material particularly extensive. Additionally, the authors have included chapters on five special topics: Java2D, Printing, Accessibility, JavaHelp, and CORBA -- all in terms of Swing.
