Swing has more versatile components (tables, progress bars, etc...) and more layouts. It has pluggable LAFs, and accessible components. Swing incorporates Models into its design, making it easier to write well-designed MVC-structured applications, and many components allow you to plug in renderers so you can customize how they are display data.
