/**
 * Consists only of static methods that create and vend frequently used 
 * Swing components that are then bound to a given ValueModel.
 * This class is one of two helper classes that help you establish a binding:
 * 1) the Bindings class binds components that have been created before;
 * it wraps ValueModels with the adapters from package 
 * <code>com.jgoodies.binding.adapter</code>.
 * 2) this BasicComponentFactory creates Swing components that are then
 * tied to ValueModels using the the different <code>#bind</code> methods 
 * in the Bindings class.<p>
 * 
 * If you have an existing factory that vends Swing components, you can use 
 * Bindings to bind them to ValueModels. If you don't have such a factory, you 
 * can use this BasicComponentFactory to create and bind Swing components.<p>
 * 
 * This class is intended to be used or extended by custom ComponentFactory 
 * classes. Such a factory can create a broader variety of component types, 
 * may use different default configurations, and can use your favorite 
 * Formatters, FormatterFactories, etc.
