Swing links of the week: December 7, 2008

December 8th, 2008

Here are some Swing links that you might have missed during the last week:

Quite a few releases announced this week:

Devoxx 2008 has started today, and it has a few Swing related presentations:

With not a single feature from my JavaFX “look forward to” list available in the first release, it’s time to see what Sun is going to announce at Devoxx. Over the last few weeks there has been significant (in number of dozens) amount of submitted and closed bug reports in integration between heavyweight and lightweight components for the first two builds of 6u12. Risking yet another prediction (the one about JDK / module / OSGi was quite right, and the main discrepancies are already being criticized by the OSGi community), i would say that the web browser component is in the works, but as a heavyweight implementation. This would require closer cooperation with the (lightweight) rest of the UI toolkit. Share your thoughts in the comments.
