Question:

Why is Java's GUI development platform named "Swing"? What does it mean?

This is all I've found so far - it's code name stuck and it was named after swing dancing.


Solution:2

Many of the folks at Sun who worked on Java are into Swing music and Swing dancing.

Duke, the Java Mascot, was named after Duke Ellington, for example.


Solution:3

Swing is not an acronym. The name represents the collaborative choice of its designers when the project was kicked off in late 1996. Swing is actually part of a larger family of Java products known as the Java Foundation Classes ( JFC), which incorporate many of the features of Netscape's Internet Foundation Classes (IFC), as well as design aspects from IBM's Taligent division and Lighthouse Design.
