Java AWT Reference

Java AWT Reference

Java AWT Reference from Oreilly is available in PDF format. Java AWT Reference provides a solid introduction to programming with the Abstract Window Toolkit (AWT) in Java. AWT programming is something of an endangered species with JavaBeans and new interface class libraries just over the horizon.


However, until these new technologies arrive, the AWT is still the bread and butter for today’s Java user interfaces. The Abstract Window Tookit (AWT) provides the user interface for Java programs. Unless you want to construct your own GUI or use a crude text-only interface, the AWT provides the tools you will use to communicate with the user. Although we are beginning to see some other APIs for building user interfaces, like Netscape’s IFC (Internet Foundation Classes), those alternative APIs will not be in widespread.
