Hi all,

1. What is Lightweight java object?
2. What is Heavyweight java object?
3. What is the difference between Lightweight java object and Heavy weight java object...??
4. Are these terms "heavyweight/lightweight" used for only AWT/Swing Or are these terms used in other java topics also???

Thank you for your reply.

Light & Heavy do have specific definitions in the world of AWT and Swing. I don't think there's anything quite so formal in other contexts.

Google is your friend. Try the JGuru link on a search for "java lightweight heavyweight" - had trouble posting the actual link.
