I couldn't tell you which one is better but I do know that there were many issues in development with AWT and SWING is supposed to have made it all better. Furthermore, I think Sun is pushing the use of SWING when building new application.
I would use Swing for any new application.

On this matter I found an article on heavy vs. lightweight components on java.sun.com. This helped clear up my thinking on Swing and AWT. http://www.java.sun.com/products/jfc/tsc/articles/mixing/index.html
I think Shama's advice is good in on which to use in new development.
