Greetings,
I am creating an applet for use behind our firewall in our intranet (nothing really complicated), but I could implement
in Swing or not. Any recommendations?
There is no capability in swing that i need.
Either way the applet will be really small.
thanks,
Steve

Swing adds substantial overhead to the browser's execution if the Swing set is not already available in the client's environment. I wouldn't use it uness I had a compelling need for it.
