Hi all,

I often wondered whether Swing offers icons (like right triangle, left triangle, upward triangle, downward triangle, squares, and etc.) with their package. Can pros here offer an answer?

If the answer is no, where should I be looking for icons to use in my Java applications? There should have already been a set of such standard icons, like open folder, save, zoom in/out, copy, cut, this kind of things.

Thanks in advance!

Ugh! Swing's Metal L&F icons. I really wish they would update those. Unfortunately, there aren't too many other options out there aside from buying an icon set, hiring someone to create some for you, or know someone willing to make them.

(for my own personal apps that I in no way share with anyone else or sale, I have been known to yank the icons out of the Eclipse source code.)
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
