Swing superceded AWT, it's far more powerful, faster (if programmed properly), and looks better.

There are several third party libraries as well, most well known of them being SWT.
Problem with most of them is that they're incomplete, not platform independent, yield poor performance, and/or are poorly tested.

alright thank you.

So the most reliable and powerfull one is Swing.

cool :D :cheesy:


Cool, Thank you.
