Mustang Swing wishlist
I think it's about time that a couple of components/widgets are added to JFC/Swing, such as a date chooser widget for example. I was amazed the other day when I was about to write a small resource booking app in swing and realized that the Swing library does not contain a date chooser! Of course, there are commercial add-on components available such as JDatePicker but I'm not willing to pay $119 for a single component!! Sure, there is JCalendar as well, but I really believe a calendar/date picker widget is such a commonly used widget that it should be part of JFC.
Among other missing components is a font chooser, and that's also pretty strange. Fonts are such a basic thing in graphical programs, how can it be there's none in JFC/Swing?
A set of DB components (such as those in Delphi) would be nice as well, but that's probably not the easiest thing to implement (but it would probably make Java more popular with those who build "meat-and-potato db apps" for small to middle sized companies though)
For a good list of available add-on Swing components, check http://weblogs.java.net/blog/hansmuller/archive/2004/10/another_40_swin....
And now a poll: what kind of components would you like to see added to Swing in Mustang(Java 6)?
