Back again this week is Chet Haase, one of the leading voices in Java desktop technologies. Joining Chet for this Special Edition of SDN Channel is, Ed Ort, our host from the Java.sun.com team. Ed has some great questions lined up that I’m sure will spark your interest. This week we are going to dive deep and learn about how you can use the power of Java 2D and Swing to create exceptionally cool graphical and animated effects. We’re not just talking about whizzy interfaces that look cool, but interfaces that provide interactive, real-time, functionality and performance.
