Swing is no longer the latest GUI toolkit for use with Java, being replaced by JavaFX. However, it will remain included in Java for the forseeable future. For more information, see the JavaFX Frequently Asked Questions.

Java Swing first programs
A basic test application for Swing is as follows:
import javax.swing.JFrame; public class Test extends JFrame { public Test() { setSize(300, 200); setTitle("Test"); setDefaultCloseOperation(EXIT_ON_CLOSE); } public static void main(String[] args) { Test test = new Test(); test.setVisible(true); } }
The constructor contains three function calls. The first two set the size and title of the window. The third statement is used to terminate the application once the window is closed; by default, the program will keep running even though the main function finishes. This is a change from non-graphical Java applications.
