Include something like Spin http://spin.sourceforge.net/ in swing to made threading issues much easier to handle.

Indeed, we have some plans to address threading problems, in Mustang. Checkout Mustang snapshots regularly.

+1 on the concept. Not sure spin is the way to go. I think if you are in control of the Swing api you can do better.

I agree Spin is not necessarily the best way thats why I said "something like spin".

What about the (more complete) solution of UICompiler. It combines action-queues and actions and many other little things.
See:

The question then becomes if you want to put it in the JDK or like the add on package as, well, add-on ?
