Swing classes inherit from AWT classes, correct? Should one start with Swing or learn the basic AWT functionality first? One book I read "Java Application Strategies for the AS/400" took some time with the AWT classes and stated that knowledge can be built upon, when you start to study Swing. As with most people, time is a precious commodity. Which path is recommended, take the time to learn AWT or jump right into Swing?
Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength. – Charles Spurgeon
If you are a real beginning to all this I would check out Steven Gutz's "Up to Speed with Swing". Its very quick and doesn't give you any detailed or advanced knowledge, but its true to its title. ------------------ Matthew Robinson co-author of "Swing" (1999, Manning Publications).
