The book leads the developer through an initial example, to whet the reader's appetite, and follows this with an exploration of advanced techniques with an array of detailed and complex examples. Unlike many how-to books, Professional Java Swing Components reinforces its ideas with actual production code – code that has been designed for, tested with, and shipped as part of a real world solution that required a large number of custom interface components.
