"Use of Standard Elements Use of functionality provided by the core Java classes will be preferred to your own implementation of that functionality, unless there is a specific advantage to providing your own implementation."
.. mean exactly?
My Case: I started to use netbeans gui builder and he is using jdesktop.org. Fine by me, but is it allowed to have an import like this??? I would have to submit this needed jar-File with my app at the end of course!?
What are YOU doing? I avoid using jars from commons project because of this. But know the gui builder would like to use these and I don't know how to change it (netbeans newbie)
You must use only standard Swing/AWT classes for your GUI. Do not use a GUI builder for SCJD except for perhaps prototyping your GUI. After your prototype is satisfactory you should then recode the GUI manually using only the standard classes. If the examiner suspects that you have generated the code somehow then you are going to get marked low or even autofailed.
Ummm... other than the jar of your own code which you are required to send. Right? The point here is: don't use any code except (a) code you wrote yourself, and (b) code contained in the JDK you're using. Anything else is not allowed.

Thanks for all of your information.
I was so happy to use netbeans gui builder, because it is so damm easy
But I understand and will not follow this path any more. I am going to "use the power in myself", like my old yoda buddy used to say
