| This is another book I need to mention. I only reference it when I need something specific about UI. This is a great book for examples and quick tips on how to do many UI related things. I have broken it out lately for some research on integrating ActiveX objects and Documents in an SWT application. This has a great Appendix (which is more like a full chapter) that explains this.
You see, we will be proving how to integrate things like MS Office with other SWT/AWT/Java based components declaratively through XML (portal wiring to be exact).
So in short, it is a great quick reference book. It’s a bit choppy from Chapter to Chapter and you will most likely not “read” it like other books.
