I am not really sure where to post this message.

I am looking in to developing java screens using xml. In my search I found several open source tools. Can anybody recomend a good one for me?

I was looking at these two SwiXml and Xml2Gui. If there is anything that is better than these out there please let me know.

Thank You.

Hello "su rr"-

Welcome to JavaRanch.

On your way in you may have missed that JavaRanch has a policy on display names, and yours does not comply with it - please adjust it accordingly, which you can do right here. Thanks for your prompt attention to this matter.

Enjoy your time here.

As to your question, one package I like is Thinlet. It's quite small, and has a low overhead.

Thank you Ulf Dittmer. I will look into it. It says it only supports java 1.1 to 1.4. Is this right? My manager wants me to use java 1.5. Is there anything else that you tried?

Is there any documentation on how to build these applications?
I could not see any thing in the zip file. they have some sample but, there is nothing that explains how to create these applets.

Please help.

Java is upwards-compatible, so anything that runs in 1.1 will also run in 1.5.

I haven't tried any other package.

I don't think there is other documentation, but if you compare the names of AWT classes, methods and method parameters with the example XML files, it should become clear how one maps to the other.
