TinyLaF is a (mostly painted) Java Look and Feel which looks somewhat similar to Windows XP but runs on all platforms supporting Java 1.4. It is released under the Gnu LGPL. V1.3.05 is the best and most bug-free TinyLaF ever.

RADi is a Java GUI Builder based on a unique layout manager, both powerful
and easy to understand. It has some nice features enabling you to create
high quality user interfaces in short time. RADi is a JavaBeans container
conforming to the JavaBeans(TM) standard.

V1.2 introduces R-Beans (RADi Beans). An R-Bean is some visual entity
(either a single component, a composition of components or a containment
hierarchy), supposed to appear in several layouts of a project. After
converting any layout into an R-Bean, you can insert instances of the R-Bean
in other layouts of the project. Changes on the R-Bean layout will
immediately be reflected in all instances.

You can evaluate RADi for an unlimited period of time. Just download and
install it.

This is a maintenance update with some new features in the editor (for example, one can now switch entire rows or columns and can move rows or columns with drag and drop).

Since its first public release in October 2005, RADi has been a flexible
and easy-to-use GUI Builder. Now it has taken the next step to be an Application Builder and a JavaBeans(TM) container.

New features are:
- Support for non-component Beans
- Event and property propagation
- RADi provides a BeanContextServices implementation
- Support for Customizers and custom property editors
- Javadoc documentation for the RADi runtime library

This update fixes all known bugs, it provides improved bean support, layouts can now be printed.
(For a complete list of changes and fixes, see http://www.muntjak.com/radi/history.html)

For those who don't know RADi, here comes a short description:

RADi is based on the concept of a design grid, using the design grid you can:
- Position components accurate to a pixel.
- Interactively specify the layout's resizing behaviour (very fine-grained if you wish).
- Create almost any layout you can think of.
- Easily re-order components with drag and drop.
- Easily change the grid by adding or removing columns respective rows.

Other highlights are:
- WYSIWYG editor
- Renderers for combo boxes, lists, trees and tables let you create a GUI demo very precisely and in short time.
- You can define popup menus, including the necessary wireing to be triggered.
- RADi panels can display background images and implement Scrollable (by means of a Scrollable definition).
- Support for null-layout-manager (JLayeredPane, JDesktopPane).
- A CardPanel component (a JPanel using CardLayout) where you can define controllers to switch cards.
- Components able to display text can also display antialiased text (by means of a textAntialiased property).
- Support for custom components (Beans).
- Easy GUI internationalization using RADi-generated properties files.
- Any container can be defined as an inner class with its own namespace (this also structures your source code).
- Look and feel switching (TinyLaF (developed by me) is included).
- Virtually unlimited undo/redo.
- You can define the FocusTraversalPolicy for frames and dialogs with a few mouse clicks.
- Some useful editors, for example:
+ Menu editor
+ TabbedPane editor
+ Border editor
+ LabelTable editor
+ Spinner model editors
+ FormattedTextField editors
+ Action editor
+ StyledDocument editor
- The RADi Tutorial and the online help should answer most of the questions arising in daily work.

Unfortunately RADi isn't for free but by purchasing a commercial annual license you get an hour of development for less than 3 Euro-Cent (plus free updates and free email support for one year). To check out RADi, download the free and fully functional demo version which you can evaluate for an unlimited period of time.

Please let me introduce RADi, a complete, flexible and easy-to-use Java GUI

internal frames) you can:

- Interactively specify the layout's resizing behaviour (very fine-grained
if you wish).
- Create almost any layout you can think of.
- Easily re-order components with drag and drop.

TinyLaF is a free Java Look and Feel which can look similar to Windows XP or Windows 98.
With the assistance of the control panel, one can define component's properties and behaviour.
From now on, YQ-themes (formerly known as XP-themes) will run on all platforms supporting Java 1.4.
The other good news: a lot of fixes and improvements (refer to the readme), also painting speed was remarkably increased.
TinyLaF is released under the LGPL, you can download both sources and binaries at
