Hello,

I have read both your Big Java and OOD & Patterns. Mr. Horstmann, have you ever considered putting together a decent Swing book that walks the reader from the beginner to the very advanced subjects in your Big Java style format?

Unfortunately, Swing is now in "maintenance mode", and I don't think anyone is going to write another Swing book.

Truth be told, when I write a GUI these days, it's in JavaScript with JQueryUI.

But if you want to write a Java GUI, check out JavaFX. The book has a crash course into JavaFX that tells you the highlights, and gives you a good idea whether it's a match for your needs.

Cheers,

Cay
