Swing is still your only real choice, as far as I know. JavaFX is up can
coming, but to quote Gertrude Stein, "there is no there there."

JavaFX appears to only be about half baked; you can do some things with it,
but not everything Swing can do. It's not really a mature platform yet. Still
worth knowing about for a Java developer, as Oracle could make it ready just
about any time now.
