A file viewer, a wizard and a button strip walk into a breadcrumb bar...

Over the past year i have written a number of components for my various projects at java.net, and i have received a few requests to make them available in a separate project. When Rick Jeliffe of Topologi has contacted me a couple of weeks ago and proposed to open-source their own implementation of breadcrumb bar (that will be an integral part of Windows Vista and was present in Topologi from 2003), it was a final straw. So, during these two weeks i have refactored and extracted a collection of (more or less) useful components into one single Flamingo component suite right here at java.net.

This project provides the following components:

  • JRibbon in the org.jvnet.flamingo.ribbon package. See
    detailed documentation.


  • Bread Crumb Bar in the org.jvnet.flamingo.bcb package -
    contributed by Topologi (under BSD license). This component is subject to some refactoring in the next few weeks, and the final documentation will be available shortly. For now you are welcome to see the code and the test class.

  • File viewer panel in the org.jvnet.flamingo.ide package. See
    detailed documentation.



  • Wizard in the org.jvnet.flamingo.wizard package. See
    detailed documentation.

  • Button strip in the org.jvnet.flamingo.common package. See
    detailed documentation.


  • Resizable icon and Stack icon in the org.jvnet.flamingo.common
    package. See detailed documentation.

  • Progress Glass Pane in the org.jvnet.flamingo.common

    package. See detailed documentation.
