Java UI development can be a quagmire. Get your schedule back on track with this exciting new framework.

Slamdunk is better than other UI tools in the only way that anything can ever really be better: it is based on more powerful ideas, carried out with precision and finesse. This is not just another GUI builder. When you adopt Slamdunk as your UI paradigm, you'll discover a new vision of software design that is truly different and more effective than whatever you're doing now.
Slamdunk is derived from a comprehensive unified design pattern. Because it allows only one kind of interconnection between UI elements, all UI elements are guaranteed to interact correctly. UIs are instantly reusable, so much so that Slamdunk inherently knows how and when to reuse them, even if they were designed by others who knew nothing about your project. Imagine what this could mean as you integrate your product line or supply chain software.
Slamdunk developer productivity is far beyond the norm. Slamdunk UIs are pure Java UIs, but most are created with little or no Java code: there is a better way to talk about these things that takes much less time to express. And UIs that do require Java coding have an explicit and sensible roadmap to follow, so you don't have to wander around wondering what to do next.
Because of its simple uniform structure, major portions of your Slamdunk UI will quite literally build themselves, by themselves, responding to changes or variations in your data automatically, without resorting to trick programming or massive editing of your codebase. Your upcoming Version N+1 is no longer something to fear.
Slamdunk UIs perform comparably in speed to other well-implemented Java UIs. Some aspects of Slamdunk performance are measurably better because its foundation classes are profoundly more efficient than the corresponding JavaBeans® foundations. Other Slamdunk classes prevent bugs by eliminating fragile glue logic.
Of course, the real payoff comes when you find yourself building UIs with Slamdunk that you wouldn't dream of attempting with other tools. And that payoff will come sooner than you might think: building with Slamdunk is not rocket science.
But be warned: you might have to work at figuring out what to do with your afternoons.
