There seems to be some action in the Java GUI world right now. I was quite surprised by how many Swing talks there are at JavaOne.
AB5K is desktop widgets in Java, using JNLP — one of my favorite under-used technologies. The web site looks nice but they don’t seem to have many widgets yet. And widgets are so last year, har, har.
Chris Oliver’s F3 looks interesting. I’m considering seeing his talk at JavaOne next week… perhaps AB5K ought to be using this. He’s also posting JNLP links for his demos.
I tried both of these with netx and gcj, but netx is too old, and we don’t have Pack200, and … OpenJDK take me away.
