Hello Everyone!
I'm an experienced Java programmer, but I have only used AWT Components for building GUIs before (since I am mainly interested in Applets). I have been interested in picking up Swing for some time now, and saw JFC Unleashed for about $4 in a store near my house. Usually I don't like books in the "Unleashed" series because they seem to cater to a bit more simplistic crowd, but this one (so far) seems to assume that I actually know Java and only want to learn about the JFC... So I ended up buying it (hey, it's hard to beat $4 for a computer book... even an "Unleashed" one... though I personally have done better... "AntiPatterns" for $1 at a used book sale...) and I have read about 3 chapters in. Has anyone else read this book, and if so, will it let me down as I get further in, or does this book defy the "Unleashed" label?
-Nate
