Hello people!
About a 2 months ago I've started studying Swing...
Don't get me wrong, I've been with Java for several years, have SCJP, and feel pretty confident, but it happens this way, I never doing any GUIs, only server-side stuff.
So I started as usually, with samples, books. Read all the books I could find - Manning's "Swing 2" and "Up to speed with ..." some O'Reilly's titles. Now I think I do know all Swing components and understand how the things works. But it turned out that it's enough only for rather small apps. Like you know, one JFrame-extended main class and everything's inside.
So the question is: where can I find good samples and maybe some common architecture solutions for medium-sized Swing based apps? Forms-based or documents-based. Becouse it seems that all the books on Swing out there can only help to learn how to use controls, not how to create solutions
regards...

You might scan the board for conversations about Model View Controller or MVC. Scroll on down to the OO, UML, etc forum and take another look. They've been around and around on this a few times. If you ask about MVC, be sure to specify SWING or we'll go off on Struts and everything else. Is that the kind of discussion you're looking for?
