Flamingo - advanced components for modern Swing applications

Breadcrumb bar

BreadcrumbBar facilitates quick navigation of multi-level hierarchies, such as file systems or XML documents. This functionality is commonly found in many web sites and is the main navigation tool in the Windows Explorer application.

The core library provides helper classes to expose a variety of navigation sources as breadcrumb bars, such as local and remote file systems, SVN repositories and tree models.
