Nimbus WebStart DEMO Mar 12, 2007 | Java, Nimbus Richard Bair has kindly put up a webstart demo of SwingSet running Nimbus on Swing Labs. 8 Comments Pierre-Yves Saumont on March 14, 2007 at 10:51 am Looks like if you switch the demo to another laf or theme, ther is no way to return to Nimbus. Not very easy to compare the lafs ! Reply Jim on March 14, 2007 at 12:45 pm Tree widget looks awful – is it being rendered properly? Reply Rafael de F. Ferreira on March 14, 2007 at 5:30 pm Excellent work! Using a demo as predicator for completion is likely to be misleading, but I have to say that from playing with SwingSet it seems that Nimbus is almost done! Reply jasper on March 14, 2007 at 6:17 pm Pierre: Sorry you can’t switch between L&Fs in SwingSet, I am just using the jar that comes with the JDK and have not edited it for Nimbus. Its just something I have been using it during development but thought that it might be interesting. Jim: There are still components that are not done, Nimbus is early stages at the moment, look at https://nimbus.dev.java.net/project.html for status.

Have you tried it again? Do other webstart applications work for you? Reply Alex on March 20, 2007 at 4:13 am Awesome! Thank you Nimbus for saving the java desktop!! I do lots of swing development and often time rely on creating faux-widgets that rely on Java2d to jazz things up a bit. Was maybe going to focus on web development and AJAX, until now… Looks like there is still fun to be had w/ swing 🙂 and btw… I LOVE YOU LARA 😀 Reply Silveira Neto on March 22, 2008 at 4:09 am Very good, I’m already using them in my Solaris. 🙂 Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
