Bringing life to Swing desktop applications - teaser 1

Posted by kirillcool on April 24, 2007 at 8:39 PM PDT

If you happen to be at this year's JavaOne, you're more than welcome to hear me and Alex presenting the Bringing Life to Swing Desktop Applications technical session (TS-3414). We will be talking about different techniques to bring your Swing application into the 21st century. The application that we've written to illustrate all of the techniques will be available immediately after our session, and here's a sneak peek at two of the effects combined in it (ghost effects and transition layout). Note that during the transitions (when the icons are zoomed in / out), the sliding icons are made translucent to make the transition look better. How many lines of code were added to the application to enable these effects? Three.

See you at JavaOne.
