We are pleased to announce JIDE Icon Set –beautiful icons for your Java/Swing applications.

JIDE Icon Set

Here is the exciting news for all developers who hate being forced to design icons (such as most Java developers here). We release our first stock icon set with 141 professionally designed icons. This icon set is built by our graphic designers with the cooperation from our developers of JIDE component products. By combining both the artistic talent and the logical thinking talent together, our icon set is designed with developer in mind which makes it extremely easy to use in any software applications, especially for Java applications which all our existing JIDE customers and users are building. It even comes with a jar file that you can put into your class path and start to use those beautiful icons right away. The price for this icon set is at a very affordable $149.99 for the Java version which is roughly $1 per icon. At the same time, we also introduced custom icon design services to meet your need. If you dream to have a consistent user interface with a set of unique icons across all applications in your company, we are right here to help you.

JIDE Release

Along with the icon set release, we also have a minor JIDE component product release to support it. JIDE Common Layer added two new classes IconSet and IconSetManager to support the usage of icon set in any Java applications. As JIDE Common Layer is open source, even you are not JIDE component customers, you can still purchase JIDE Icon Set and use it with open source JIDE Common Layer.

In this release, we introduced an easy way to do row or column stripes using CellStyleTable. All you need to do is to call table.setCellStyleProvider(new RowStripeCellStyleProvider()) in this new release. We also copied an idea from Vista where we resize the column to fit the visible rows only when user double clicks on between the table columns on the table header. It is optional. If your table is huge and autoResizeColumn call takes a long time, you may consider this option.

Another exciting news is we added as many as 48 different locales for some properties files. Thanks Mike and his company contributing all those localized properties files. As there are too many properties, we decided to move all the properties files to jide-properties.jar in the this release. If you need localized version, you will need to include jide-properties.jar in your class path. Please refer to the change log to for all the new features and bug fixes.
