Dear All,

I am new to Java based GUI Design Frameworks and need to perform a comparative study on SWING and SWT in terms of Framework Performance (Page Load Time etc) and Quality of the Pages designed using SWING and SWT. It would be really helpful if anybody could please elaborate a bit on this topic.

Thanks in Advance,
Suvra Nandi

There is no such metric as page load time for these frameworks because they're not browsers. Both frameworks obviously have proven themselves in the real world and there's no real performance difference. If you need to choose between SWT and Swing then you;'ll be making that choice along some other metric- documentation or preexisting libraries, integration with other applications , forward looking analysis of future features etc. I like Swing a lot better. I think it's better documented, more libraries I need, more books and more people know it . When SWT came out I had a look at it , tried it out then ran the other way unfortunately I can't recall my exact reasoning any longer.
