ArtTk is a graphic library based on Java/Swing offering an open development toolkit intended specifically for scientific and technical applications. It provides a set of widgets and functional modules a set of support modules (helpers) permitting dynamic definition of menus and tool bars from simple XML configured files, and supporting tooltips, icons, action commands, etc.; a very adaptable generic desktop, facilitating the assembly of Swing components in a specialized GUI; an extended Grid layout to simplify the development of advanced scientific applications; and a set of scientific and technical widgets, such as a dynamic memory footprint monitor, simple key-values based fields editors, a generic color gradient editor, etc.
Rapicorn is an experimental UI toolkit. It strives to apply modern technologies properly to all aspects of the toolkit implementation. Such technologies include pthreads, XCB, Cairo, compositing, IDL, XML notation, path evaluation, DSLs, unit tests, and SVG. Rapicorn is developed on this base with the aim to significantly improve developer efficiency and user experience.
MSBLayout is a layout manager for Java AWT and Swing that combines the nested-boxes approach of BoxLayout with flexible constraints as used by GridBagLayout. A concise API with good defaults minimizes the code required to get the layout you want. MSBLayout makes it easy to align and justify components and to synchronize their sizes. Gaps between components can be inserted automatically. Optimized resizing behaviour keeps your dialogs looking good when displayed larger or smaller than their preferred sizes. The API is also well suited for constructing layouts dynamically at run-time.
