Oxbow is collection of useful Swing components and utilities. The project currently has 2 subprojects. The "Swing Bits", which is the Swing UI components collection. And the "Task Dialog", an advanced dialog component conforming to the specification described at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa511268.aspx. Additionally, in order not to hinder the business logic, the "Task Dialog" is deliberately made to be very simple. Internationalization (I18N) is supported and extreme attention is paid for the components to look grat with any LAF out of the box.

Oxbow has the following goals:

  • Create a trivial TaskDialog API for Swing
  • Provide Look&Feel independent UI components
  • Conform as much as possible to the OS standards when using sytem LAF
