Open Icon Library is a collection of free commercial software friendly icons in PNG and SVG formats. The collection have over 5000 unique icons. I can’t want to get my hands on the SVG version and convert them into Java classes using Java 2D to draw the icons. Come back soon for an update.

I was searching for some icons to use in my Swing GUI program and came across the Tango Desktop Project. It is an icon library for free and open source software. Instead of just taking the icon images from the library, I took it a step further. I use the SVG version of the icon and created an Icon java class that uses Java 2D to draw the similar icons. The biggest benefit is you can create an icon of any size without losing image quality. You are free to download and use the icons in your GUI programs.
