Synthetica is a 'Look and Feel' for Swing and is based on Synth which is part of version 1.5 of the Java2 Platform, Standard Edition. It provides components with rounded borders, shadowed popup menus, nice icons and a new, fresh look. Moreover it enables you to modify existing LAF's, or to create your own LAF only by editing a xml based configuration file. You don't have to write komplex Java-GUI-Code, but you can integrate own code by your needs.

Synthetica comes along with an extended FileChooser to support fileoperations like cut, copy, delete with multithreaded capabilities. All file-views are sortable. Once Synthetica is your active LAF, the JFileChooser component supports all the above features.
