Depends on what you are aiming to achieve, i mean the look and feel of your buttons and co, some people prefer awt probably because of java version problems and for some other reasons, but i personally love swings,

I think swing is meant to be a replacement for AWT.
I suggest you use swing.

I agree. Do people still use AWT? Wow. What About SWT? www.developer.com/java/other/article.php/3330861

Funny I tot AWT was already extinct, true it's still included in jdk distributions but that's just for backward compatibility.

Anyways, Swing is the current graphic API supported by Sun, but like the previous post said, you could try out SWT which I hear is better than Swing but it's an open source graphical package that plugs into the eclipse IDE.
