The JavaDesktop Web Site
For GUI Community

The JavaDesktop Web site is a new gathering place for members of the JavaTM technology graphical user interface (GUI) community. The site offers news, discussions, technical articles and open source projects that use the JavaTM 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SETM) to produce applications with rich client interfaces.

Hans Muller, the CTO for Sun's Desktop Division, stated it has been a long road to where the desktop site is now. "We've always been a big community, however sometimes it was hard to see it all at once because the work we do is very diverse and it's nicely distributed all over the world. It's great to have a place to visit and see it all." Also on the desktop Web site are forums. The Welcome message is by Jeff Dinkins, the engineering manager of the JavaTM Foundation Classes/Swing (J.F.C./Swing) API and AWT development teams at Sun. The forum has a place for product announcements and a bulletin board to post jobs, resumes and classifieds. Technical topic discussion areas are on the Java 2DTM API, J.F.C./Swing API, look and feel fidelity, JavaTM Media Framework API, JavaHelpTM software, deployment, internationalization and more.

The Project section of the Web site lists many rich Java technology client projects, from libraries you can use in your own application to full end-user applications.

The Partners section contains links to partner Web sites dealing with topics and technologies such as the JavaTM Sound API, PlexObject Solutions, L2FProd, Jive Software and more.

The site also features technical articles. To explore the site, go to:
