Java desktop links of the week, April 13

Welcome to the very first Easter edition of Java desktop links of the week ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you all had a great easter, had a chance to spend time with family, and didn’t eat too much chocolate. Perhaps because of the short week, there has been far less news this week than normal. Let’s get started:

Swing

JavaFX

That’s it for another week. Have a great week and keep up the hard work in whatever you’re passionate about! ๐Ÿ™‚

Java desktop links of the week, April 6

Here are your Java desktop links of the week. It’s been an interesting week to be a Java developer, given the rumours swirling around a potential acquisition of Sun as soon as this week. Who knows, next weeks post might be SWT links of the week ๐Ÿ˜‰

Regardless of what happens, have a great week, and don’t work too hard.

  • Jan Haderka has announced that SwingX 0.9.6 has been released , which should be the last release before the 1.0 release. There are a number of bug fixes and code cleanups in this release, and even includes my first contribution to the project ๐Ÿ™‚ If you are not using SwingX , I seriously recommend that you explore the various components offered by the project.

Java Desktop links of the week, March 16th

Given the lack of news related to Swing recently, I think it’s getting to the point where I think another rename of this series is in order, this time to JavaFX links of the week ๐Ÿ˜‰ Regardless, on with the news:

General GUI News:

  • The JavaOne 2009 sessions have been allocated and announced. You can search the sessions here . More information about JavaOne is available on Suns JavaOne website . Whoever is sending me my plane and conference tickets is leaving it very late ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Kirill Grouchnikov (@kirillcool ) continues with his Trident animation library . This library does not necessarily animate Swing components, hence it being included in general GUI news. In general, Trident is a high-performance timeline framework, allowing for large numbers of interrelated timelines to be created.
