Completely revised, expanded, and updated for version 1.4 of the Java 2 Standard Edition (J2SE), this Third Edition not only adds updated programming examples of key Swing features but rounds out the book with key concepts like printing so the title provides a more complete reference for those interested in component-based user interface programming in Java. Key areas of new and updated material include drag and drop, accessibility, printing, focus management, and deployment. From the author: One of the things I'm trying to do with this edition is to expand things a little. With prior editions, my goal was to explain Swing. If it wasn't Swing, it wasn't in the book, even if it was part of what you would normally do with Swing. In this edition, I plan on adding content on topics like printing, the AWT layout managers, and deploying with Java Web Start and the Java Plug-in. While they aren't pieces of Swing specifically, they are important/related enough that they warrant discussion with the rest of Swing.
