Alright, I think that I'm going a little overboard here but I wanted to check and make sure that I am . My UI requirements state:
"It must be composed exclusively with components from the Java Foundation Classes (Swing components)."
The thing that is a little confusing here is the piece referring to "Swing components". As a lot of the Swing components are very tightly integrated with AWT components, I assume that using AWT components in conjunction with Swing components is okay, right?
Thanks,
Tim

Well I believe the LayoutManagers, most of them are from AWT. So yes you will be using some AWT. However the AWT specific classes like their Buttons and Textboxes you cannot use, you must use the Swing version of these classes.
So if there is a Swing version of a class from AWT that you are thinking of using, then don't. But if there isn't an equivalent in Swing then you can use it, like ActionListener.
Hope that helps clear it up.

Thanks Mark, that's what I was assuming but I just wanted to make sure. Have you finished and submitted the assignment yet?

Thanks,
Tim

Hi Timothy,
Mark passed the SCJD certification (with over 97% ) way back on December 18, 2001. Since then we have been lucky to have him help everyone else. He did try to escape to the Oracle forum, but we dragged him back
Regards, Andrew
