Swing desktop apps descriptive layouts. Are they worth the trouble?
posted 6 years ago
I would like to ask what is your opinion on Swing applications which construct the GUI via xml files that describe the layout.
For me it seems too much tedious.
I understand that you can change the GUI by updating the configuration file, but I am not sure if this is worth the trouble.
Am I wrong?
Is this approach something used often in commercial desktop applications?
