TikeSwingis an open source Swing framework that provides a high-level Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture and simplifies the usage of Swing components. The framework supports the plain-old-Java-object (POJO) programming model by connecting view components directly to JavaBeans. This article describes TikeSwing's features and demonstrates how to build a clear MVC architecture with the framework.
rating comment: The framework seems to be quite complicated. I might check it out, but I'm not too sure if there'll be a real benefit, considering the time you need to invest getting to know the framework.
