Java client app framework?
Is there an application framework for creating heavy-weight Java apps? Something along the lines of MFC perhaps? I hate reinventing the wheel, and so would sure like to use someone else's.

Or if you want to use the "standard" Swing components, download the Netbeans platform from www.netbeans.org. Much the same idea, a modular framework, originally designed for making an IDE, but which can be applied to most sorts of app.
Naked Objects looks very interesting, you can get fully working apps running *very* quickly:
I would not call Naked Objects a "Client app framework". "Raw domain model viewer/editor" sounds more appropriate.
True... I just finished the book and was feeling evangelical.
