With the arrival of Sun's Swing/JFC classes, Java developers can create user interfaces that look great and perform just as well as "native" interfaces. The JFC Swing Tutorial: A Guide to Constructing GUIs provides a hard copy of Sun's popular online tutorial for Swing/JFC development. Its numerous code examples and clear presentation style make this title a fine choice for mastering the ins and outs of today's Swing.
Owing to its Web heritage, digestibility is perhaps this book's most notable feature. Short sections on virtually every topic in Swing programming help bring the reader up to speed with this UI library. Early sections look at getting started and the organization of classes in both applets and applications, as well as useful high-level classes like frames and scroll panes. When it comes to such basic Swing components as text, label, and image controls, Swing beginners will appreciate the concise description of each component along with necessary APIs. More advanced material, such as optimizing repainting of Swing controls and techniques for more efficient tables, will be useful to any Swing developer.

Most computer books use either code excerpts or full-length programs. For the main text of The JFC Swing Tutorial, short code examples are the norm, but with over 300 pages of complete programs in an appendix, this book will also please those who appreciate more complete examples.

Efficient and thorough, this book succeeds in making JFC/Swing enjoyable while imparting a good deal of necessary information. Armed with this book, any intermediate to advanced Java programmer can make sense of today's Swing with a minimum of effort. –Richard Dragan

Topics covered: JFC basics, compiling and running JFC programs, JFC applets and applications, pluggable look-and-feel options, layout managers, event listeners and event handling, graphics, images, animation and painting, threads, JComponent, frames and top-level containers, basic and advanced JFC components, tables, trees, models and custom editors, accessibility APIs, and converting code from AWT to JFC. –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This edition of The Java Tutorial tells you how to write GUIs that use the Java Foundation Classes (JFC) Swing components. In this book we cover the most recent release of the Java 2 platform (v1.4.2 as of this printing). We also include information valuable to programmers using earlier releases and discuss Swing enhancements planned for the near future. The online form of The Java Tutorial has covered the Swing components since their first public early-access release-;Swing 0.2, which came out in July 1997. Throughout the early releases, the Tutorial kept pace with API changes and additions. Readers and reviewers kept us on our toes, helping us improve each page tremendously. Although this book has its roots in the online version, this edition has been reorganized and rewritten. Numerous improvements have been made. First, this book uses current API (v1.4.2), has six new introductory chapters, and has an easy-to-use tabbed reference section. It reflects lessons learned by the Swing team in the years since the introduction of Swing components. Second, we cover newer features such as JFormattedTextField, JSpinner, indeterminate JProgressBar, mouse wheel support, the rearchitected focus subsystem, and improved support for drag and drop. The book and CD contain more than 150 complete, working examples. The authors have worked closely with the Swing team to ensure that the code and discussions reflect recommended usage. The Swing component set has now been out for several years now and has a mature API. That, combined with the years of experience the Swing writers and engineers have had with the API, enables us to create the definitive introduction and guide for both inexperienced and advanced programmers who use Swing components.
