Yes, I know it. At least in "consumer" applications. I have not seen any
example in bussines applications. Could you point me any ?. Could you give
me a design overview of any swing bussines application you coded in the
past ?.

I feel that is harder to make a productive swing bussines application. I
have done several swing applications very quickly and easy to use, very
fancy with swinglabs, jgoodies and some other libraries. But they are not
bussines applications. Mostly, don't involve databases at all. I don't see
java desktop bussines application too frequentely or too popular. But I am
not a swing neither a java expert. That is why I am asking the experts and
learning from responses.

Thanks,
Diego.

I guess as far as strategies to consider when making business apps, I've
found that this list of pattern hits the mark pretty well :
http://www.time-tripper.com/uipatterns/.

Yahoo! has a library of what they call 'UI patterns', but it is really a
list of effects; it is still worth looking at:
http://developer.yahoo.com/ypatterns/atoz.php

It be nice to see some Swing/SwingLabs based examples of these. (Hey, I
think I just figured out something to do with my spare time!)
