About Swing and SwingX
If you are interested into Swing, SwingX, JavaFX, you shouldn't miss latest Kirill's interview of Richard Bair. Let me just point out a couple of passages:
How likely is it to see the SwingX components being part of core Swing in JDK 7 and beyond?
All of them? Unlikely. Some of them? Extremely likely.
What effort is planned to be put into the core Swing in 2009?
Weâ€™ll have announcements for these plans at Devoxx (*).
(*) I'm not pushing you to attend Devoxx, as the event is sold out, so if you have got the ticket you'll be there, if you don't have, no chances for this year.
