Dieses Buch ist das ausführlichste und fundierteste Werk über Swing. Beispielweise werden beim JTree als Beispiel eine XML-Datei in den Baum eingelesen. Nach so einem Beispiel habe ich stundenlang auf Sun's Webseiten gesucht. Darüber hinaus erklärt dieses Buch nicht nur die einfachen Dinge der Swing-Komponenten, sondern auch wie die komplexeren Komponenten funktionieren, welche Klassen man mit hinzufügen muss um eigene optisch unterschiedliche Darstellungen zu erreichen (z.B. JTables, JTree). Das Buch wirkt auch deswegen sehr sympathisch, weil die Beispiele meist nur ein oder zwei Seiten lang und damit verständlich sind. Dieses Buch ist das beste Buch über Swing (und ich habe die anderen von Sun-JFC usw. auch gekauft und immer fehlte mir ein Aspekt oder die letzte Erklärung wenn es wirklich an das Komplizierte ging). Das Buch ist zwar in English, aber für den Java-Programmierer, der in die Tiefe rein muss bleibt ohnehin keine Alternative mehr auf diesem Detaillevel.
Solche Bücher wünscht sich der Java-Entwickler !

Pavel Vorobiev and I are currently finishing up an 'advanced' Swing book consisting mainly of examples ("Swing", Manning publications). We have referenced the Swing source code nonstop. Apart from this, we feel that Java Swing is the best Swing reference money can buy. This book is not an API docs dump. It is a high quality reference book for GUI developers who are prepared to do their job professionaly, not blindly. If you are looking for a hand-holding tutorial this book is not for you (for this I would suggest Up to Speed With Swing).
Java Swing is very well organized and full of original explanation. I encourage potential readers to disregard other comments claiming that this book is API repetitive or doesn't explain enough. No book can cover every possible situation that can arise in the creation of a GUI, and no book will fully explain all of the inner workings of each Swing component and UI delegate. Swing is a very complex and extensive library with some very interesting and powerful mechanisms working behind the scenes. Without a doubt, Java Swing is the most informative and rich reference available. I recommend it highly.

With the introduction of the Swing graphical toolkit to Java 1.2, developers now have the freedom to write applications with rich graphical user interfaces (GUI). Swing gives Java applications the professional edge that has long been shared by their C++, VB & Delphi counterparts, and goes further with a huge range of new components and controls, and customizable "look-and-feels". But while Swing may be the way of the future for developers, its a steep learning curve because of the complexity of the Swing toolkit. That's where "Java Swing", published by O'Reilly, comes in.
Java Swing, at a whopping 1200+ pages, is a fantastic reference that you'll keep within arms reach as you program in Swing. But the book is more than just an API reference - its a combined tutorial and book of examples. Aside from the first few chapters, which provide a basic grounding for the rest of the book, you can skip from chapter to chapter as your needs dictate. It covers all the major component groups, as well as providing useful examples and code snippets.
My one complaint about this title is that it appears to have covered the entire swing library, and in doing so the authors tried to put just too many topics into it. Perhaps it needs to be split into two volumes, but while working through the book as part of a programming project, I found that there were some areas where a more thorough treatment should have been given (in particular, the chapter on trees which provides not enough detail, and only very simple examples). That said, "Java Swing" is a fantastic resource, both as a reference and an overview/tutorial of Swing, and is the best Swing book available to-date  (as of February 1999).

I've read a large number of technical computer books, and I've found that the quality of writing varies enormously from book to book (Wrox). And so, too, does the overall comprehensibility.
This book, however, really made my life easy. In the project I was working on, I knew pretty much what I needed to do, and this book facilitated my understanding of Swing greatly. The text is filled with examples and thoroughly documents each of the Swing components. I found it very helpful as a supplement to the official Java documentation.
I hadn't read an O'Reilly book until this one and I have to say that I'm impressed. I'll be trying out some of their other books in the hopes that the quality carries over.

This book has been well reviewed by others, but for once I actually read a programming book cover to cover (on vacation), so I wanted to comment.
This is the first book on Swing that I have read, though perhaps the 10th on Java, and I have been using Swing since the first beta was available.
I think the authors should be commended for really examining each class that is presented, and the sample programs to exercise the "little" classes really show good preparation. I think the size of the sample code is perfect to explain a concept without getting bogged down in the details of a toy application.
The book is organized in a "bottom up" fashion, so the TableColumn class is explained before JTable (for example). This provides consistant explanations, but it does mean deferring the motivation for learning something until the end.
The biggest problem is with the Text/Editor classes. Here there are 200 pages of preliminary information before you get to JEditorPane, and then the authors stop and say the class is too buggy to explain. I can't blame the authors for JDK problems, but I think a "top down" explanation might work better with this very complex set of classes. On the other hand, if we ever do get a version of JEditorPane that can display HTML without throwing exceptions, these chapters will provide good background material.
I learned things from almost every chapter, it is a very good reference.

There is a lot to know about Swing -- a ton. It's a hazard in writing about it to render so much information in a tedious way, and this book fell victim to it. Every stone of Swing the authors could think to turn is, I am sure, turned. For Pete's sake, this book is longer than Unix Power Tools, and that book represents two decades of Unix experiences!
I've had this book for six months and I'm still trying to pick through all the method, class, and interface descriptions to find the kernels of real insight. The book does have them, but you have to wade in deep to get one. I would rather have a well-organized collection of insights to guide exploration, and a separate reference section; this book mostly lists and explains. I can't stay awake for it.
The concepts are important. Plenty of examples are important. With those things firmly in hand, you can point out exceptions or substantive variations on rules, focussing on major ideas.
I have no doubt this book was an exhausting effort; the style reflects it.

This is my first review ever and the only reason I am taking time to do this is to give credit where credit is due. I am surprised that some of the reviews are 1* - it is in-depth, covers a lot of ground, well organized, excellent class diagrams and examples. Intermediate to advanced. The best one for swing. - from a software architect

This book was ok. A book cannot be everything to everybody. This is not for a beginner. But I do recommend it for advanced users. I enjoyed the fact that the book was very comprehensive.
There were some small errors- no big deal.
One example:
I started about 3/4 into the book. I ran into BasicWindowMonitor(); which was defined way back in chapter 1. I should have guessed. But I couldn't find the author's code. BasicWindowMonitor() wasn't in the index. I emailed O'Reilly with this issue. The publisher is first class. They had great tech support. They directed me to the proper page and apologized. Also, the publisher has all the software code from the book well organized on their web site. The authors picked a good publisher to support their product. That should be a factor for every reader when purchasing technical books.
In summary, this is a book for the advanced JAVA programmer. If you are one, you probably should have it on your desk.

There are many types of computer book. If you are inexperienced, or don't know the background, then a tutorial is best. This isn't a tutorial, more in the "Nutshell" tradition of O'Reilly - ie what I'd call an "Annotated Reference", giving both building-brick examples and concise explanations of the technology alongside a full technical reference. For a tutorial, it'd deserve no more than 2 stars, but as a desktop reference for those who are confident of their Java/GUI skills, it is a great reference - 5 stars. Overall though, as a second Swing book for those less sure of themselves, and doubling as an annotated reference for the more advanced: 4 stars overall, as it doesn't give you the background a full tutorial would.

I returned this book: I already had it in the form of javadoc-generated api specs.
Well, it did provide different information than the API specs, but I found it poorly organized and formatted. The bottom-up approach, as one reviewer put it, did me no good. I really would rather know what a JTable is before a JTableColumn.
For the reasons stated above the book was not much use as reference material either.
To the author's credit, he apparently got the book published very quickly in terms of Swing 1.1's birthday, so at one point it probably was the best Swing book around, but now you can save your money and buy another book.
