I am planing a redesign of a (Delphi) client-server application to java ee 6. I would like to use Spring 3 / Hibernate as a middle tier. The middle tier should serve several clients (rich, browser, mobile devices).
Actually the main surface in the Delphi world are feature packed grid controls to display monthly / daily schedules. We use devexpress vcl. (QuantumGrid / ExpressScheduler).
how can I have similar GUI functionality using java?
I am very unsure if I should use Swing, SWT, Flex, etc...
I have found decent controls in http://www.jidesoft.com
which are Swing based.
Do you have other suggestions?
Eclipse RCP seems to be too restrictive on the layout.
Open source or licenseware is fine, I would have good options to create nice, feature packed client GUIs...
Thanks a lot!
