    Default Re: we have awt then why we need a Swing

    Worse: there is awt, swing, swt and JavaFX. They all do similar things.

    If I say that Swing is basically "AWT 2.0", do you then understand why you would want to use it in stead of AWT?

    There's a very good write up on the relationship between AWT and Swing at java - What is the difference between swing and awt? - Stack Overflow. See also Abstract Window Toolkit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and Swing (Java) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. In general, a simple search in the Internet using the search term "swing awt" will give you relevant results.

    Perhaps the OP was actually talking about dancing.

    My guess is that the OP is one of those people who like to ask useless questions; you see them all over the place (forums, LinkedIn etc) asking about why multiple inheritance isn't allowed, why there is no 'with' key word in Java, why Swing and AWT, why garbage collection, why interfaces etc. etc. etc. Humanity is going completely imbecile if you'd ask me ...

    kind regards,

    I blame smart phones. I can back that up too!

    A few weeks ago I saw what I discribe as a "smart phone zombie" - the type of person who is just glued to his/her phone and doesn't even look up from it when for example standing up to exit a subway or train car. Its a growing epidemic, there really is a zombie plague out there.

    I witnessed one of those imbecile wonders walking on the street. And I witnessed her just walking right for a streetlight. And I witnessed her walking right into it, head first. Made a nice hollow sound too.

    Brain damage - that's my reasoning.

    Those are the morons who send instant messages (what'sAps) to the person sitting next to them and complain that they can't take a 'selfie' of themself while playing with their phone ...

    Yes, in stead of "braaaaaaains" they moan "selfieeeeeeeeeee". And there I can offer more proof that it damages your brain:

    PS: for a dinosaur you're very up to date. I had to explain to my girlfriend what a selfie is when I told her about the above news item.

    Thanks for the compliment; I am a dinosaur with concrete eyes: I can stand the reading movement of my eyes without crying; I also read about those stupid 'selfies'; b.t.w. that Spanish guy that was electocuted on top of that train must've been sooooo totally brain dead already ...
