Action Questions

I have a lot of Actions that I've been thinking about donating to
SwingX. And after reviewing some of the existing actions, I had a few
questions:

1. None of the currently available actions seem to make use of icons
(at least the ones that I've seen in
org.jdesktop.swingx.actions). Is there some other place I should
be looking for better examples?
2. Is there a directory where icons are usually stored? On all of
the projects I've worked on before there's usually an
etc/images-like directory for these kinds of resources.
3. How should i18n be handled with respect to Actions? Are there any
existing examples I should use to refactor my actions?

Regards,

Mark Fortner

One suggestion that might get you quicker feedback--once you have
signed the JCA, commit a demo in the incubator with a WebStart
launcher, with a proposed answer to each of your own questions. Point
people to the demo and the code, then see what they say--seems to be
the quickest way to draw attention around here :). Demos with eye
candy tend to get even more interest, as many of us are at work, and
bored, when the links cross our desks.

Cheers

Patrick,
I've signed the JCA a couple of months ago. My current question has
only to do with the use of actions and any policies that the group might
have with respect to them. My hope in posting to the list is that one
of the original committers to the action package would respond with
their views on how actions should be created and thus save me some time
writing throwaway code. :-)

I understand the intention, but from my own experience, and following
the list for a long time, a cute JNLP app is about the only sure-fire
way to get a response. Otherwise will depend on how busy people are,
whether they've worked on that problem recently, etc. I'm not trying
to be cute, it just seems to work that way.

Either way, good luck.
Patrick
