Hi Friend,

Differences:

1) AWT stands for Abstract windows toolkit whereas le Swing is also called as JFC?s (Java Foundation classes).

2) AWT components use native methods Swing components use the methods that are written in Java. Therefore AWT is heavy weight component and swing is light weight component.

3) Light weight components have transparent pixels where as
heavy weight is always opaque.

4) Light weight components are non-rectangular whereas Heavy weight
components are rectangular

5) Swings components are made in pure java and they are
platform independent whereas AWT components are platform
dependent.

6) Swing provides look and feel feature whereas this feature is not supported by AWT.

Thanks
