I develop a number of desktop Java applications using Swing, and while Swing is quite powerful (once you get the hang of it), there are still a lot of cases where I wish some advanced component was available right out of the box.
For example, I'd really like to see easy-to-use components (without writing them myself, which I could do given enough time) like:
* Multi-line label
* Windows File Explorer-like Icons or Thumbnails view
* Drop-down button (like Firefox's old Back button)
* 5-star rating widget
* Combo box with automatic history (like the text field on Google)
* An Outlook-style accordion-style bar
* and so on
I know of a couple of sources of free Swing components, like SwingLabs, home of JXTable, JXDatePicker, and a few others.
**Where do you go for Swing components beyond those included with Java itself?**
Multi-line labels are built into Swing because you can use HTML in JLabels: stackoverflow.com/questions/685521/multiline-text-in-jlabel
