Summary

dishevelled.org identify provides lightweight components for identifiable beans, those marked as having a name and an icon bundle. The identify project has a dependency on the dishevelled.org iconbundle library and requires java version 1.6 or later.

A bean becomes identifiable by implementing the Identifiable interface:

class MyBean
  implements Identifiable
{
  /** Icon bundle. */
  private static final IconBundle BNDL = new PNGIconBundle("mybean.png");


  @Override
  public String getName()
  {
    return "MyBean";
  }

  @Override
  public IconBundle getIconBundle()
  {
    return BNDL;
  }
}

by having the BeanDescriptor in its BeanInfo class extend IdentifiableBeanDescriptor:

final class MyBeanInfo
  extends SimpleBeanInfo
{
  /** Icon bundle. */
  private static final IconBundle BNDL = new PNGIconBundle("mybean.png");

  /** Bean descriptor. */
  private final beanDescriptor = new IdentifiableBeanDescriptor(MyBean.class)
    {
      @Override
      public int getNamePropertyIndex()
      {
        // return the index of a property descriptor to use as the "name" property
        return 1;
      }

      @Override
      public IconBundle getIconBundle()
      {
        return BNDL;
      }
    };


  @Override
  public BeanDescriptor getBeanDescriptor()
  {
    return beanDescriptor;
  }
}

or by doing nothing and accepting the defaults as implemented in IdentifyUtils.
