www.boardVU.com has a JDNC example that is runing JDNC and
SadnraSD/RiA-SoA.
(if you check it out, do so in IE for now only).

I find that JDNC is cacthing up to SWT.

I don't get it? This is supposed to be better than SWT?

The buttons look non-native and weird.
The tabs look non-native and weird.
The toolbar or whatever it is at the top is weird.
The lists have the wrong selection color (and text selection too).
The window contents don't resize during the resizing.
The scrollbars look non-native and weird.
The focus rectangle all over, looks non-native and weird.
I don't see normal context menus for highlighted text.

And quite frankly, the whole thing looks ugly. I choose SWT because it
matches the native OS look and feel. JDNC is an attempt to make rich client
app development easier, but (as far as I understand it), its still just
Swing with all its problems.
