Would it be possible to have seperate forums for AWT and Swing?
Whenever I ask an AWT question, I mostly get Swing answers even when I specify that I'm using AWT.
Thanks,
Drew

I am afraid that it would become impossible to moderate. There is a large intersection of topics that cross both lines. And not every person knows where one stops and the other begins (as you can tell from the responses that you have been getting).
Perhaps you could preface your question with a line that says:
No solutions that use classes that start with the letter J!!"

Actually, you can mix AWT and Swing. But unles you are very careful, you won't like the results.
I just started writing some Swing code after maybe a year or so doing J2EE stuff. I'd forgotten how horrible it is. I think it may be the only GUI in existence where the authors made 100% certain not to learn from all their predecesor's mistakes.
