How can I evaluate the Swing Suite?
What is the relation between the free libraries and the Suite?
The Swing Suite includes the open source JGoodies libraries: Animation, Binding, Forms, Looks and Validation. It adds support, example applications with source code, several convenience classes and prebuilt panels, dialogs, and frames, as well as a user interface framework that addresses several everyday Swing tasks.
How can I convince my boss to license the Swing Suite?
Let your boss run the Metamorphosis demo; then analyse and discuss where you stay and where you want to go. If you build form-centric applications you may demonstrate Skeleton Pro.
If your boss has complained about the appearance and responsiveness of your Swing apps you may show JDiskReport - and don’t say that it’s Java!
If you need to validate data in your editors, show the Validation Demo and browse the different example that show how you can validate and how you can present validation results.
Basically the question is how much time you save with the Swing Suite, and how much you increase the quality and whether you can reduce the risk in succeeding with Swing.
How can I learn more about the Swing Suite?
First off, the Swing Suite contains the free Looks, Forms, Binding and Validation libraries; download and test them! In addition the Suite brings all components, panels, dialogs, and more generally, solutions that you can see in our freeware tools and demos. Just launch them and see yourself!
If you are not sure about the Suite’s content and value, download the freeware, integrate it into your application, then ask yourself whether you save time, gain quality, or just feel better when working with Swing.
