All set to become the one-stop resource for serious Java developers, this is the first comprehensive book to be based on released versions of the Java 1.2 Swing Set. While thorough in its treatment of the Swing set, the book avoids covering the minutia that is of no interest to programmers. John Zukowski is one of the best known figures in the Java community, and one of the most popular columnists for JavaWorld Magazine. He provides significant content for JavaSofts own web site and was the principal author of the "official" on-line Swing tutorial.
Filthy Rich Clients refers to ultra-graphically rich applications that ooze cool. They suck the user in from the outset and hang on to them with a death grip of excitement. Filthy Rich Clients: Developing Animated and Graphical Effects for Desktop Java™ Applications shows you how to build better, more effective, cooler desktop applications that intensify the user experience. The keys to Filthy Rich Clients are graphical and animated effects. These kinds of effects provide ways of enhancing the user experience of the application through more attractive GUIs, dynamic effects that give your application a pulse, and animated transitions that keep your user connected to the logical flow of the application. The book also discusses how to do so effectively, making sure to enrich applications in sensible ways. In-depth coverage includes Graphics and GUI fundamentals: Dig deep into the internals of how Swing and Java 2D work together to display GUI applications onscreen. Learn how to maximize the flexibility of these libraries and use them most effectively. Performance: Follow in-depth discussions and tips throughout the book that will help you write high-performing GUI applications. Images: Understand how images are created and used to make better Java applications. Advanced graphics: Learn more about elements of Swing and Java 2D that are of particular benefit to Filthy Rich Clients. Animation: Discover general concepts of animation, as well as how to use the facilities provided in the Java platform. Learn new utility libraries that vastly simplify animations in Java. Effects: Learn how to create, customize, and use static and animated effects—the mainstays of Filthy Rich Clients. Code examples illustrate key concepts, and the book’s companion Web site, http://filthyrichclients.org, includes extensive demos, utility libraries, additional information on related technologies, and more. Informal, fun, and, most of all, useful, this book is great for any developer working with Java to build desktop applications.
Swing is a fully-featured user interface development kit for Java applications. Building on the foundations of the Abstract Window Toolkit (AWT), Swing enables cross-platform applications to use any of several pluggable look-and-feels. Swing developers can take advantage of its rich, flexible features and modular components, building elegant user interfaces with very little code. This second edition of Java Swing thoroughly covers all the features available in Java 2 SDK 1.3 and 1.4. More than simply a reference, this new edition takes a practical approach. It is a book by developers for developers, with hundreds of useful examples, from beginning level to advanced, covering every component available in Swing. All these features mean that there's a lot to learn. Even setting aside its platform flexibility, Swing compares favorably with any widely available user interface toolkit--it has great depth. Swing makes it easy to do simple things but is powerful enough to create complex, intricate interfaces. Java Swing, 2nd edition includes : A new chapter on Drag and Drop Accessibility features for creating a user interface meeting the needs of all users Coverage of the improved key binding infrastructure introduced in SDK 1.3 A new chapter on JFormattedTextField and input validation Mac OS X coverage and examples Coverage of the improved focus system introduced in SDK 1.4 Pluggable Look-and-Feel coverage Coverage of the new layout manager, SpringLayout, from SDK 1.4 Properties tables that summarize important features of each component Coverage of the 1.4 Spinner component Details about using HTML in components A new appendix listing bound actions for each component A supporting web site with utilities, examples, and supplemental materials Whether you're a seasoned Java developer or just trying to find out what Java can do, you'll find Java Swing, 2nd edition an indispensable guide.
Updated for JavaFX 1.3 The JavaFX platform makes it possible to write applications that can be deployed across devices ranging from cell phones to desktops, with little or no change required. JavaFX applications are written using JavaFX Script, a new and easy-to-use scripting language. Kim Topley’s JavaFX™ Developer’s Guide thoroughly covers the JavaFX language and its core libraries and shows you step by step how to develop and deliver JavaFX applications for the desktop and for mobile devices. It provides complete coverage of all aspects of the language, including Language syntax Tools you can use to develop, debug, and deploy JavaFX applications User interface classes Animation How to play audio and video How to use RESTful Web services and databases to retrieve the data for your application How to create custom components Transformations User interface basics, attributes, events,and controls JavaFX and networking JavaFX development with NetBeans and Eclipse Packaging and deployment Topley highlights critical topics that other books gloss over, presents detailed examples that stretch JavaFX to its limits, and shows you exactly how to build on the skills you already have. Whether you’ve been focused on HTML/XML/CSS Web development or Java Swing, this book will help you get outstanding results with JavaFX.

Grails is a full stack framework which aims to greatly simplify the task of building serious web applications for the JVM. The concepts within Grails, like interceptors, tag libs, and Groovy Server Pages (GSP), make those in the Java community feel right at home. Grails’ foundation is on solid open source technologies such as Spring, Hibernate, and SiteMesh, which gives it even more potential in the Java space: Spring provides powerful inversion of control and MVC, Hibernate brings a stable, mature object relational mapping technology with the ability to integrate with legacy systems, and SiteMesh handles flexible layout control and page decoration. Grails complements these with additional features that take advantage of the coding–by–convention paradigm such as dynamic tag libraries, Grails object relational mapping, Groovy Server Pages, and scaffolding. Graeme Rocher, Grails lead and founder, and Jeff Brown bring you completely up–to–date with their authoritative and fully comprehensive guide to the Grails 2 framework. You’ll get to know all the core features, services, and Grails extensions via plug–ins, and understand the roles that Groovy and Grails are playing in the changing Web.
