The future of AWT
I'm a Java beginner; just purchased four books to start learning it (Core
Java volumes 1 and 2, and Graphic Java volumes 1 and 2), and the books tend
to lean more towards Swing and less towards AWT. From what I remember reading
of the Core book volume 1 (up to the point I've gotten to so far), it talks
about how Swing is becoming more portable and the "newer" way of handling
graphics in Java.
I was wondering how worth it is to focus on AWT if Java programming is tending
to lean towards Swing.
Any comments? Is AWT equally as important to learn well like Swing, or is
it going to become out-of-date?
