Desktop Java Live is written for Java developers that have some experience with desktop development and now want to take their skills to the next level. The first seven chapters of the book cover core open source libraries in areas such as threading, layout, data binding, and validation, which can drastically speed up the development of desktop applications written in Swing. Each chapter features detailed code examples and images to walk the reader through the API being covered. Chapter 8 features a detailed discussion of how the MVC pattern and its variations (Presentation Model and Model View Presenter) can be used to write cleaner more testable applications. The chapter then details the construction of an RSS reader using these concepts along with the API's covered in earlier chapters. Upcoming chapters will address deployment, Java Web Start, GUI testing, and the SwingLabs (JDIC and JDNC) components. This book received 10 out of 10 horseshoes on

    "From OSNews" "Swing itself is not slow, but that's not to say that it's that easy to write large applications that perform well. There is definitely room for some more articles on using Swing in the desktop... There is a real need for Swing books that tell you how to do things in the real world. [Desktop Java Live] is the first book I have come across that is trying to do that. Even all the books called "Advanced ...","Extreme...", etc., all they do is redo the Java [API] docs for the more advanced components. There are a few topics that just don't seem to be documented at all well anywhere like the Focus System." Jasper Potts - Xerto
