All AWT components are heavyweight and all Swing components are lightweight (except for the top-level ones: JWindow, JFrame, JDialog, and JApplet)

Not according to the docs - it's lightweight. Anyway, it's normally contained within a JDesktopPane (also lightweight) which in turn can be put inside one of the heavyweight components.
