  • Griffon: Swing just got fun again

    9:15 AM Sunday   Room: 4218
    <p>After a few hours in Swing, some developers will swear that its an API only a parent could love. Be that as it may, because of its long existence, Swing is one of the most supported and extended components of the Java language. </p> <p> Griffon allows you to have to best of both worlds, the plethora of user interface widgets already available and a way to interact with them in a sensibly structured way that doesn't really feel like programming Swing. </p><p> In this session, we'll cover the basics of the Griffon framework, giving you the skills needed to create your first Griffon application, extend it with plugins from the Griffon/Grails ecosystem, and create your own to encapsulate your favorite Java library. A session attendee should have some knowledge of Groovy.</p>
