Swing has lot of components built in, but still some are missing. This project provides the developer community with these missing components, inspired from modern user interfaces. It provides a PropertySheet component, a collapsible task pane (JTaskPane), a button bar (JButtonBar), a font chooser (JFontChooser), an Outlook Bar (JOutlookBar), a Tip Of The Day dialog (JTipOfTheDay), and a directory chooser (JDirectoryChooser).
