Are there some tools available that help out with creating animations (eg use the Timing framework) visually for Swing components (both the look and behaviour)? There is a rumor going around that there is a NetBeans plugin which can do animations, however I have not been able to find it anywhere

So if anyone can point to where this plugin can be found then that would be great

We've been wanting to create one for a long time but we haven't done anything yet. I have seen a couple of tries but no real product. That said, I did not look for such products. Hopefully it will arrive soon.

The Timing Framework is a relatively recent project (just went 1.0 last week), so I doubt there are tools out there yet unless they're just in development or being prototyped. However, the idea of a tool was always in the back of our minds as we were working on this and related projects. We needed some infrastructure first (ala the Timing Framework) to make the job easier. Now that we have that, all we need is time...

Chet.
