Hi
I need a pointer to a great Swing book. Not a beginner's one and not the one for experts. I would realy appreciate all the suggestions.
Thanks

Hello Marijana-
I bought a book called "Java Swing" made by Robert Eckstein, Marc Loy, and Dave Wood that is published by the O'Reilly people. At first it was a little over my head, but after I read through it a little bit and tried out some of the examples, it made a little more sense. This is probably a good book for people who have a good handle on general java programming (unlike me when i first purchased the book).
The ISBN number is : 1-56592-455-X. It retails for $44.95. If you buy it, send me an email and let me know what you think :-)
