Is there a version of the Java Tutorial (http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/) available for download specifically for Java SE 5 (JDK 1.5?

I am interested in the UI/Swing trails but am specifically looking for a version for Java 5 since I am currently learning using JDK 1.5.

Thanks.

The release notes for Java SE 6 does not contain any large incompatibilities with JDK 5. I'd think the Swing tutorial would be backwards compatible for the most part.

Apart from (table) row sorting and filtering I think there is very little new in the Swing API in Java 6.

I tried running the ProgressBarDemo app in the Swing trail and obviously it didn't compile using JDK 1.5. Google search revealed that SwingWorker only became part of the Swing packages from Java SE 6.

I was really curious about how to modify the ProgressBarDemo app so that it works under JDK 1.5 without the SwingWorker class. Any info on how to do that would be appreciated.

Thanks.
