Life is good... Java 7/JavaFX
I saw the demo, and it was awesome - I hate editing XML files by hand, and Scene Builder does a great job of laying out your UI and creating the FXML for you.
FXML is the first UI binding language that I actually like - and this makes it better.
It really looks like Oracle is putting a lot of effort into JavaFX - I plan to start porting all my Swing apps ASAP, and see how it goes. Now I wish I'd had a cleaner separation of UI and logic :(
