Hi All,

Can i know what is the industry definition for lightweight and heavyweight objects?

One about AWT is heavyweight and SWING is lightweight for usage of navie system resources is okai.

Is there anything in for just java objects to be said as lightweight or heavyweight ?

Things in my mind like :
1) Use of hierarchy of objects.
2) heavy in memory.
3) something like EJB is heavy ?

Cheers,
Amit
