I've installed J9 and Swing libraries on my PDA but I'm having some problems running Swing programs. My application will display JFrames, but none of the components I place inside the Frame. I'm getting the following runtime error:

'Exception in thread java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: java/awt/Component.getPeer()Ljava/awt/peer/ComponentPeer;'

I'm compiling under jdk 1.3.1_13 and have been told that the method getPeer() has been deprecated. Does anyone know of a way to get around this? Or if there's a version of the method I could use that hasn't been deprecated.

I agree. Here's the link:
