I've been diving into the wealth of components offered in the SwingX releases (0.9.2), and I've been implementing the very cool JXStatusBar component in an application.
On Windows platforms (XP, at least), it provides the graphic of a resize "gripper". It does not, however, provide the functionality to actually mouse-over, change cursor icon, and click-and-hold to resize the window. I've done a little research, but haven't turned up any really juicy articles or tutorials.
So then my question to the saloon is: how do we go about mimicking the behaviour exhibited by the borders of a JFrame?
