hence The Chaoslab (each res has it''s own examples).
It was allot of work though but now I have ultimate control of all user interface and user interface interactions (I am working on a event recoording system for it at the moe).
Suprising size is not really an issue if you are concerned about size as for download times, once you .jar stuff it does tend to decress in size dramaticly, at least 50%.
Since swing is based on AWT any way and is slower I would recommend AWT.
And swing is not support in jdk 1.0 - 1.1.
I am not sold on swing though it does look very powerful and straight forward to use.
