Hi,

I am writing a client-server application using swing. I am completely new to swing and am following the Swing tutorial on the Sun website.

Are there any other resources(books, websites etc.) that provide guidance on a systematic approach to writing applications using swing ?

thanks,
Matt

If you are familiar with Spring, you might want to check out The Spring Rich Client Project: http://www.springframework.org/spring-rcp

Use the O'Reilly Swing Book.
http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/jswing2/index.html

It is pricey, but it is well worth it. I am about a third of the way through the book and so far everything that I have tried works in 1.5, too.

You won't need another Swing book after this.
