Folks,

Is it possible to add a JPanel with some swing components to AWT Frame?

If yes, how?


Thanks!

java.awt.Frame has an add() method that takes a java.awt.Component, and JPanel has Component as an ancestor, so it's as easy as calling add(). However, mixing AWT and Swing components is discouraged as it can have some ugly side effects.
