A review of "Java Look and Feel Guidelines" by Sun (01 Aug 1999)
In summary, its a visually stunning book. The advice isn't so stunning but its not so bad either. Java needed this book and it must be essential reading for Java Application developers. I'm not so sure about Applet developers and the book doesn't spend any time on web design issues. It takes the "stuff the Applet in a box on the page" approach and forget about all that Browser clobber around it which will not even match the JLF in the Applet.
