This book gets into the details behind some of the swing components. It covers editors, highlighters, documents, renderers and drag and drop.
The author does a good job of getting behind the scenes explaining and showing with code real world examples. There are examples of validating textfields, formatted textfields, using HTML in JEditorPane, JTables and drag and drop.
This is definitely not a beginner book. You must have a good understanding of Swing. The only drawback to the book was the long explanations of what not to do (told at the end of the explanation).
