Central Florida Software Symposium

Advanced Swing: Architecture and Frameworks
Are you spending more time plumbing your Swing applications than solving business problems? Has your Swing application grown out of control? This session is for you.
In the first part of the presentation, I analyze the architectural problems that plague many Swing applications and present architectures that overcome these problems. These architectures are presented in terms of principles along with a reference implementation. You can therefore either adapt the principles to meet the needs of your existing applications, or incorporate the specific ideas of the reference implementation into your new projects. Fortunately, there are some existing frameworks that have done some of the architectural work already. I present some of these frameworks in the rest of the presentation.
