Pure JFC Swing ePub download

This book is good as an introductory read with a good bit of source code. This quick reference does not go in depth and you will need to get other books on advanced Swing programming to implement high quality functionality into your GUI.

This book is good as an introductory read with a good bit of source code. It assumes you know Java programming and helps you to get started using Swing. The other half of the book is a quick reference without much elaboration - good if you already use Swing and need to recall class information. The code does have some things left out; like in the Internal Frames examples - the author left out the JInternalFrame.

Pure JFC Swing is a well-organized guide to all the new Swing components, and it includes clear programming examples. Besides a worthy overview of Swing development, this book provides over 300 pages of reference material on all Swing objects, properties, and methods. The book begins with a guide to what's new in Swing, including its new interface components and pluggable look and feel.

Satya R. Pantham has eight years of experience as a professional software developer. He is a consultant for Sun/JavaSoft where he worked closely with the JFC development team and created commercial e-mail software with Java and JFC. He is also the author of Pure JFC Swing.

Pure JFC is a substantial and focused reference for sophisticated Java programmers. This book begins with an accelerated introduction to JFC so that experienced Java programmers can quickly understand the new concepts and begin developing their own JFC applications. Pure JFC also contains hundreds of programming techniques, complete with well-commented code examples that readers can immediately use in their own Java programs.

This book has good code samples and covers a lot of Swing. Unfortunately instead of really covering all the detail of a very complex framework, the book stops halfway both figuratively and literally. Of the 806 pages, only 356 are really any use. The last half of the book is composed of poorly presented synopses of the packages. These 450 pages (except for a workable index) are a waste and should have been used to convey the detail missing in the first half. They contain no navigational aids; instead class and interface descriptions appear seemingly randomly according to obscure (to me)organizational principles.
The book also lacks a stylistic or pattern-based overview; instead we are left to infer these from the code samples.

I bought the book following the reviews and I found it to be a waste. I was looking for an advanced swing book and I landed in buying one that is very elementary. I expected this book to provide some advanced examples but I did not find one. This book is for beginner, and even a beginner will not need this book after a week or 2. The book is actually 356 pages and rest is just appendix which one can freely download from some site on the net. As an example hardly 2 pages are devoted to the JScrollPane, which actually needs a deep understanding. Buy this book and u will never touch it again. I do not know how some people gave a 5 * ranking to this book.

In the past few months, I've read many books about Swing, the new graphics library from Sun. One thing stands out above all others - a lack of good code examples. Its not just that you can learn so much from looking at someone else's code, or that code helps reinforce the theory taught by an author. Good code examples, the type that are packed throughout "Pure JFC Swing" can be used AFTER you've learnt the basic theory of Swing - in your own applications, and projects.
That's the main reason why I'm so impressed with "Pure JFC Swing". Its certainly a good reference for those wanting to learn more about Swing - but there are many good references on the topic, such as "Java Swing". It has a good API reference as well, but most books on Swing include a lengthy API reference. What makes this book stand out from the crowd is its code. Not only are there code examples for all of the components in Swing, but these code examples are also far superior to any I've seen before. They've well commented, and show the signs of someone intimately familiar with Swing's inner-workings. Even complex topics, like trees, are given comprehensive coverage (something that titles like Java Swing lack significantly). For example, Dr Pantham shows you step by step how to create trees, and tree models, and then finally how to provide your own custom rendering of tree nodes and leafs.
The author's code examples are easy to understand, with good commentary. Code examples start simple, and then build on previous examples as you progress throughout each chapter. If you have a particular interest in a component, you can go straight to it and within minutes have working code - a big plus for those who are working to deadlines, and can't afford to read ever chapter in sequence.
There is one tiny flaw, however, and that's that the source code isn't provided on CD. Though the code can be downloaded from the publisher's site, its a little hard to find. Once you've downloaded it though, you're well on your way to programming in Swing. All of the examples can be easily incorporated into your own applications, so it is a great timesaver, and an excellent way to improve the quality of your applications. If you've been disappointed, like myself, by the examples in other Swing references, and want good working code that demonstrates the Swing component library, this book is for you!

Although "Pure JFC Swing" is 800 pages, more than half the book is a reference to the Swing API. As a reference it is mostly useless. The pages are not labeled and the classes are listed by package so it is almost impossible to find a class without using the index. Each class contains only the signature of each method with no explanation as to how the method might be used which limits its usefulness. The Sun online API is a much better reference. The first half of the book is an introduction to Swing and this is what makes the book worth its very reasonable price. The book starts off with a nice introduction to Swing and the MVC architecture. The author then discusses some of the basic Swing classes. This section of the book features a good discussion of panes but like most of this section it leaves you wanting more. The author has an excellent writing style and gives good, clear examples for each of the classes but each topic ends too soon. Also, too many topics are not included in this book. This book could have been an excellent book. If the publisher had abandoned the idea of supplying a reference and had let Dr. Pantham have the entire 800 pages, this would have been a much better book. If you plan on doing a little work with Swing and you're looking for a light introduction, this book may serve that purpose.

If this is a reference, I will give it one star. If this is a How-To kinda book, I will give it three starts. For a reference, this book simply doesn't have enough description for the classes. The appendix simply LIST all THE METHODS and fields for the classes WITHOUT ANY DESCRIPTION at all. It is hard to tell what "undoableEditHappened()" is, for instance. For a How-To book, this book is pretty good. It has alot of useful, well commentted code examples; better than many other books that I have read b4. However, the so called "Code Details" session is simply a copy of the comments from the code examples. I don't think I need to read them twice. The plus side for this book is that it has alot of pictures to show you how those components will look after you do this and do that to them. After all, this is a book about SWING. Many SWING books don't have too many pictures. It is kinda hard to tell what a JComboBox with Labels and Icons will look on the display. I will give it two stars overall.
