I would not recommend starting something in adf swing.(personal opinion)
please wait a response of oracle employees
I did read that link.
I even wrote an email, but unfortunately I have no feedback on the topic.
So I am looking for more information on the subject.
Deprecated means that we are not developing this technology any further and that there is a chance it won't be there in the next release (12c).
I thought I'd bring this topic up again. Now Jdeveloper 12c is out and ADF Swing is still present, at least in the documentation. I haven't checked the IDE support yet. Has the deprecation been reconsidered or just delayed?
I am interested in this topic too and I would like to ask a sub-question:
Does ADF Swing have any alternative/replacement? What technology should we use if we need to implement a desktop ADF client-server application without an application server?
Design time and Runtime for ADF Swing is still there in JDeveloper 12c to support existing customers.
However, we are not actively developing this technology since the 2011 announcement of its deprecation.
If you are looking to build new mobile or browser based applications, you should look at the latest versions of ADF.
If building new client applications with Swing is what you're interested in, we continue so support generic Swing development.
We've improved Swing development in JDeveloper 12c, by incorporating the Matisse Swing editor.

A huge, huge "Thanks!" for that! That really made my year.
