Swing’s technical relevance is eroding
- The shift from desktop to mobile caused the end for the desktop-only era. As the demand decreased, the supply for desktop development skills, crucial for Swing applications, has diminished.
- With Swing, there’s a lack of responsiveness on different platforms – in both the application performance and their development.
- In 1999, a Swing application could work on almost any graphics-enabled computing device without having to be recompiled. Nowadays less than half of devices sold are able to run Swing.
- By staying with Swing, your IT infrastructure becomes complex and costly to maintain.
