Many people say using java swing applications, client server apps are very slow. For a client server application, isnt java swing good?

in my opinion, about Client - Server
Clients are created by Swing API , it's not slow if clients are not complex.
Goal of client-server solution : Bandwidth of network

Swing can be fast for complex apps too -- faster than apps with native components, actually -- if you take advantage of the separable model architecture. For example, if you have a mess of data changes, then it's much faster to make them to the data model (of a table or list, say) and then flush the data out to the component than it is to update the values in the component one by one. Some component architectures don't give you that option.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
