You could probably find demonstrations free of charge on the Internet, however. The true value of this work is in the comments its five authors have attached to their copious examples. They can be quite specific: at least one such segment warns that default Swing behavior violates Mac OS X user interface guidelines and explains how to work around the problem. Another section explains how the methods of the UndoableEdit class can be used in various ways, to implement different user interface behavior options. Some readers will head straight to the O'Reilly Web site, where they can grab the code and examine it in an editor rather than in print--code listings take up a lot of space here--but everyone will appreciate the concise hierarchy, method, and property documentation, as well as the wisdom contained in the prose. --David Wall
Topics covered: The Swing classes for creating graphical user interfaces in the Java programming language. It covers all the windowing stuff--dialogs, buttons, containers, layouts, lists, and that kind of thing--as well as tables, trees, text-manipulation classes, formatted text, drag and drop, and accessibility support.
Marc Loy is a senior programmer at Galileo Systems, LLC, but his day job seems to be teaching Java and Perl to various companies -- including Sun Microsystems. He has played with Java since the alpha days and can't find his way back to C. He is developing an interactive learning application at Galileo written entirely in Java. He received his master's degree in computer science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and still lives in Madison with his partner, Ron Becker. He does find time to relax by playing the piano and/or throwing darts, depending on how successful the day of teaching or programming was.

Deep enough, James Elliott makes look easy to program with java swing. Not complicated hacks, explaining the default options and the way to extend them in the easy way.Published on July 27, 2013 by Ignacio Malfabon
This book is a very good beginner's resource. Concepts are explained clearly. I wish they'd update some of the information to the newer features of Java 7 and other JavaFX. Read morePublished on February 24, 2013 by Fed
Be aware of the true date of publication. Amazon seems to be bending the rules about the date of publication for electronic media. Read morePublished on August 11, 2012 by Weston Buckhorn
Some more damage than described, but still a great deal for $5. Would buy again.Published on November 16, 2009 by Spencer Sevilla
A purchased a brand new book. When I got it the cover was creased in half.
The book is amazing but the shipping care was poor. I should have just got a used book. Read more
This book does a very good job of consolidating all of the information regarding Swing that can be found on the internet and putting it into one book. Read morePublished on February 4, 2008 by Eric J
This extremely hefty book on Swing has just about everything in it. However, it is intended to be a reference on Swing, not a tutorial. Read morePublished on January 21, 2006 by calvinnme
