Swing and JDK 7: Sun keeps it going

Danny Coward posted a statement regarding the future of the swing package in later releases of the JDK.

According to him, Sun will continue the work on Swing and even more try to ease the development and enhance the deployment and runtime performance.

The whole post sounds very convincing that Sun hasn’t given up and that Swing will become more and more useful (again).

Danny also mentioned new components in JDK7 like the DatePicker and CSS styling – both are very attractive to me and I can’t wait to use them in the next project.

Born in the north of Germany, raised in Berlin and stayed there since. After graduating, studying applied computer science at the FHTW Berlin (now HTW Berlin), I started my own company with a former fellow student, providing high class application solutions for web and desktop for small and medium companies (see www.jnamic.com (english version to be finished) for more information). My personal favorite programming languages are PHP for the web and Java for everything else - although I must admit Java evolved very much in the past few years. I love to code and build new applications from the scratch, optimizing it through day and night till I am satisfied with it's performance. So follow my articles, share your thoughts and experience with me and have a good time browsing this blog!
