JHeatChart is a one class Java API for generating heat map charts that was created because very few charting APIs seem to contain the facility to create heat maps. It is not a full featured charting API and cannot be used to other charts. The generated charts are created as Java Image objects, which can be incorporated into a GUI or saved to a file.
libNUI is a hardware accelerated GUI framework that makes it possible to build rich multi-platform applications based on 3D rendered dynamic layouts. Interfaces are built as a composition of widgets and behaviors, and the framework handles positioning, resizing, anchoring, and texture stretching. Objects are connected with synchronous events and delegates for mono-threaded communication, or asynchronous notifications and message queues are used for multi-threaded applications. It also supports strings (including Unicode), paths, files, data streams, fonts, threads, critical sections, audio buffer rendering, and more.
