Fellows'
I want to gain a practical experience using Swing. But unable to find some good applications in it, i diont know y? as it is so popular but not much information available.
I saw beautiful applications in the "Swing Sightings" in java web site. But, when
I search for the books on GUI development using Java Swing, I find there are very
less number of applications on Java Swing.
Can somebody suggest me an open source available(something big) in the net which describes
a client server based application whose user interface is coded in Java Swing with
business logic.
Your help will be appreciated.
Thanks.
Muhammad

If you are already accomplished in AWT and JAVA 2 in general, I would recommend Core JAVA 2 VII-Advanced Features from Sun Microsystems Press.
It has a large chapter on Advanced Swing, as well as Advanced AWT and JavaBeans which is at the core of the Swing event model.
The book's ISBN is 0-13-081934-4.
Hope this helps
