Well, when I read the blog below from Oracle's Donald Smith, in charge of
all Java things, Swing isn't even mentioned, i.e., it is all about JavaFX:

https://blogs.oracle.com/java-platform-group/the-future-of-javafx-and-other-java-client-roadmap-updates

That means for AWT and Swing, everything is as it always has been, i.e.,
the status quo continues, which is fine, and then read the official PDF
announcement...

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/javaclientroadmapupdate2018mar-4414431.pdf

...which ends with these words:

"Oracle will continue developing Swing and AWT in Java SE 8 and Java SE 11
(18.9 LTS). This means they will be supported by Oracle through at least
2026."

I really wouldn't be worried at all about something that will be supported
"through at least 2026".

Forget about AWT, Swing and JavaFX - the future is HTML. In case you
still
care about Java, then your future should be Apache HTML/Java API!
Funfact: Without JavaFX you don't have a HTML5 renderer in the core
JDK. So the only thing that could run your HTML/Java API is removed by
Oracle.

BTW: Swing was declared dead as often as Java itself. And just wonder
it is still here.

If this path is followed, I'll reconsider the IDE that is build on-top
of SWT.
