Hey man, let me introduce you to http://www.google.com -- it's extremely handy for simple questions like this. I found your answer in a second by typing in the following:
difference between awt and swing
There are many decent results on the first page or so, and one of them is straight from Sun's website:
I also found some good replies by searching the beginner forum on Javaranch:
This last post points to an article at Sun's site. If you want to know a really basic answer, then AWT is the old original GUI stuff, and Swing is the newer stuff (now many years old). Swing is part of the so-called JFC, in case you get confused by hearing about that.
From now on, always search first and ask questions only when you can't find the answers! Don't worry--we've probably all done this.
