Hi,
I ve never used swing.we are using Java frames to display the live digital camera frames.Speed can be the issue when show the multiple camera images on the same m/c.Suppose we ve scenario where manager wants to see what is happening at all the premises security gates on his m/c,so in that case video memory will be shared and may affect the spped.So I would like to know whether Swing will have any advantage over applet or frame.

Hi,
From my experience, I have found swing applications to behave erratically at times. Also, I would assume that Swing frames would be as fast as corresponding AWT ones. The only advantage would the rich UI feature set that Swing offers, but certainly not speed.

I remember reading that the Swing components in JDK1.3 were supposed to have improved performance but I can't claim that I noticed any significant difference.
