The installation page on my website (www.zappie.net/java/javatorium/installi.htm) shows how to install BOTH Swing 1.0.3 and Swing 1.1.1. Why? So that users can use old-style Swing programs, including the vaccess classes from the toolbox. However, I push them to use javax.swing because it's definitely the impending standard. If you guys had released the source of the vaccess package, I would have converted it for you <grin>. I've already done that for the windows LookAndFeel classes; there's a jar on my site called windowsx.jar that contains the javax.swing.plaf.windows.* classes. >David Wall >AS/400 Toolbox for Java BTW, I just wanted to thank you folks for the incredible work you've done on the toolbox. In fact, in the June/July issue of Midrange Computing's AS/400 NetJava Expert I have an article (on converting AS/400 spooled file to PDF using server-side Java) and in it I mention how integral the toolbox will be to the success of Java/400. Please, keep upo the good work. (And now, if we could just have the JVM/400 truly integrated with the rest of the operating system - direct calls to *JVAPGM, no QShell - we'd be in programmer's paradise.) ================== Joe "Zappie" Pluta www.zappie.net/java "Where the AS/400 speaks Java with an RPG accent" +--- | This is the JAVA/400 Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to JAVA400-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to JAVA400-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to JAVA400-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
