    Default “User Desktop” in Java - framework needed

    Hello there!

    I'm looking for a framework to make virtual desktop for users in Java SE application. Something like JDesktopPane in Swing but more advanced.

    Needs are simple:

    user can arrange things on his desktop (like on desktop in any OS). You should be able to put any widget as an "icons".
    Ability to block desktop arrangements for re-customizations
    ability to create default profiles for different user groups

    Any ideas?

    Just how many places have you cross-posted this question?

    There's nothing wrong with cross-posting questions, but there is if you don't tell us up front that you're doing this, else you're asking volunteers to do work that may have already been done elsewhere. Please provide any links to all cross-posts.

    Quite apart from the cross posting, you didn't bother to return to the only other thread you started. Why should we expect any better behavior this time round?

    I'm sorry about that but I had posted this question on stackoverflow and users founded it as "not constructive" so I became quite desperate and posted it on other places:
    “User Desktop” in Java - framework needed - Dev Articles
    [J2SE] Image browser with pan-and-zoom effect

    ...and here. Please accept my apology.

    I'm not even sure what phrases should I put in goggle to find those libraries...

    Default Re: “User Desktop” in Java - framework needed

    I founded nice looking frame docking library: Docking Frames.
    It's something that my be a solution form me. However it would be nice to drag and drop widgets form toolbar to main "desktop" window. And after removing them form main windows they should appear on the toolbar. is there any framework that supports such feature?
