The OpenJDK demos are in the jdk repository - so just cd to jdk/src/share/demo for the 
good stuff. I can't find SwingSet2 in there, so I don't think it was released as 
part of OpenJDK - I believe the demo contained a bunch of third party images, though
the exact minutiae of that happened before I joined Sun.

Meanwhile, the next generation of open source Swing demos can be found at 
https://swingset3.dev.java.net/ - though that doesn't necessarily make sense as
something to hack on to get a feel for OpenJDK, as it's not a part of it.

Instead, if you want to have a go at improving the Swing-ish demos, please take a 
look at the jfc subdirectory of the demo directory for the examples that are in
