    Default AWT or Swing

    I want a simple GUI. I am not too concerned about the look and feel. I just want it to load faster. I need to to go on the web - so it will be an Applet but should I use AWT or Swing.

    Ideas are appreciated.

    I would try both ways and see which one worked better for my needs.

    So there is no rule of thumb for choosing AWT or Swing.
    Is that what you mean?

    Thanks mate.

    Swing is easier to use. It seems to be a matter of personal preference.
