Linux Journal: GUI Development with Java

“If you looked at the earliest versions of Java and concluded
that its GUI development toolkit wasn’t quite ready for prime time,
it’s time to look again.”

“The Java Foundation Classes (JFC) introduced with Java Version
1.2 bring Java forward to the point where it can easily compete
head-on with Motif and MFC for professional GUI development. If you
already know the Java language, JFC can beat both Motif and MFC
hands down for ease of programming. In this article, I will show
code that was developed “by hand” using just vi and the Java
Development Kit (JDK). Many higher-level development tools and GUI
builders are available to make this job even easier.”
