I realize this isn't completely on topic. But I am very interested in your techniques for FRC and am trying to get the Aerith demo code to compile. Since you release it last year the SwingX components have undergone some changes and the code doesn't appear to compile anymore. Some of the classess have name changes or API differences that don't match the current implementation of SwingX and Swing-WS. ex. org.jdesktop.swingx.JavaBeans is now org.jdesktop.beans.AbstractBean I believe...

Do you plan on updating Aerith to fix it for the current Swinglabs libraries or can you point me to some documentation of the changes to the mapviewer API?

BTW: I can't wait to get my hands on your new book. You guys have taken Java clients to a whole new level of estetics.

The source tree contains all the jar files you need and compiles without installing any other library except for JOGL.

Also, note that the demos posted on the book site (see my .sig below) might be easier to learn individual effects and techniques from than taking on all of Aerith. Aerith is great for showing the effects in context, but there's so much there there that it might be harder to puzzle out the individual contributors to the whole. So my advice would be to poke through the individual demos (explained by the text in the book) to learn the what/how/why and to play with Aerith to see many of them in action and context.

Chet.
