Hi,
Does anyone know why the default focus traversal for Swing applications is layout based and for AWT, it's container based? I am looking for some history as to why Swing didn't stay with the container based policy. Maybe a document from Sun or something. Google did not turn up anything useful.


thanks,

Barry
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
