JIDE and Synthetica

JIDE Software and JAVASOFT Software Engineering are glad to announce the support between JIDE and Synthetica product lines.

JIDE is one of the most popular open source and commercial Swing component libraries. Thousands of companies are building their Swing applications on top of the frameworks and components provided by JIDE.

With the latest releases, all custom JIDE components will automatically get the style of the currently selected Synthetica theme. No extra code is needed as long as you add syntheticaAddons.jar and jide-synthetica.jar to your classpath, set the L&F to Synthetica and install JIDE extension just like before.
