Swings are things where you sit. Applets are tiny Java applications embedded to a web page.

Seriously, this isn't a question about testing so I'll move the thread to a more appropriate forum; the Applets forum.

Swing is a collection of classes (GUI components) that can be used to build GUI applications.

An applet is a special type of Java-application that can be embedded in a web-page.

Swing can be used inside an applet. But Swing and an applet are 2 totally different things.
