Putting the Swing into Java

  • John Hunt
Part of the Practitioner Series book series (PRACT.SER.)


We have already mentioned the Java Foundation Classes (JFC), Swing and the Java 2 release of the Java Developers’ Kit (JDK 1.2) in this book. However, many of you won’t be sure of the relationships between AWT, Swing, JFC and the JDK, nor indeed what Swing actually provides. This chapter cuts through the hype and shows you what Swing will mean for you.
