Learn to program with Swing -- the framework that defines the look and feel of the modern Java graphical user interface. In this fast-paced guide, master programmer and bestselling author Herbert Schildt shows you how to develop sophisticated user interfaces with Swing. The book begins by describing Swing's architecture, design philosophy, and core concepts. It then examines the Swing component set, which includes buttons, check boxes, lists, trees, tables, menus, scroll bars, spinners, and scroll panes, to name just a few. You'll learn the fundamentals of each component and the techniques needed to use it and then see examples that demonstrate the component in action. By the time you finish this hands-on guide, you will be able to start creating your own professional-looking Swing-based applications.
