This is not going to help you in your day to day work, but.... here's how you can get to Creator's easter egg (if you're in Sun management, please look away...). Open the designer, drop an Output Text component, change its label to (exactly) "DonkeyOnTheEdge" (who can spot the movie reference?) and then double click on it. Voila!
You can use arrow up and down to speed up or slow down the scrolling list, and hit space to pause and unpause.
Hopefully nobody who participated in the 1.0 release were forgotten from the list. The easter egg code is hidden in a sneaky way inspired by
some code obfuscation ideas by
Peter van der Linden. I highly recommend his Just Java book. I think he has a new edition that he was signing at JavaOne right after the Creator book signing.
