One widget I'd love to see is a DATE PICKER for goodness sake. How many people have written a bean to do this???? There should be one already written and included. Speaking of dates...this is one issue that drives me nuts. It should be so much easier to produce and work with dates. I actually liked the deprecated Date class better than the "new" one where I constantly have to create a new "Calendar" to do anything at all.

On the plus side. I love how many commercial/free libraries there are. I can almost always find a pluggable component that I need when I am building specialized applications. For example...working with barcodes, identity management, etc.
