Hans Muller, CTO for Sun's Desktop Division, has recently informed me that he will mention JFCML at this year's JavaOne conference in San Francisco (June 27-30th), along with some similar tools such as SwiXML.
"I'm doing a talk about declarative XML schemas for Swing GUIs at JavaOne this year and I'd like briefly cover JFCML. My impression is that you've taken roughly the same tack as SwiXML albeit with a very different implementation. One major architectural departure from SwiXML would have to be integrating with BeanShell. This seems like a nice way for developers to construction actions and layout managers although mixing scripts with declarative code is always a bit if a compromise."
