Whatsapp-like chat window. Java Swing or JavaFX ??

0 Francois van Wyk · April 3, 2015
I am busy with my own Instant messenger and I have tried (unsuccesfully) to make a chat window similar to that of the Whatsapp one using the Java Swing platform. Is this affect possible using the Java Swing platform or should I switch to JavaFX?
Advise and/or tips please.

you should switch to JAVAFX for a more modern look and feel.

JavaFX. But expect to be hard since JavaFX styling is ridiculously badly documented. 
Pro tip: You can use SceneBuilder to inspect CSS hierarchies.

Dankie. I'll start looking up JavaFX tutorials
