An acceptable reference manual
on 23 April 2014
As other reviews have suggested, this is not an introductory manual. It is a reference manual. As a reference manual it isn't perfect, but it is the most comprehensive Swing reference I have found. There are plenty of examples, but some are made more difficult to understand by relying on information which is not explicitly provided in the definitions. You need to have access to the on-line Swing library definitions to get a clear understanding of some areas.
In spite of its minor failings it is a good tool to have available and provides a better explanation of Swing library elements than others I have rrad.
