7.4.1. Abstract Windows Toolkit

Java AWT is the basic Java GUI library. It hides the underlying details of the GUI at a high level of abstraction. The documentation for the package is available at java.sun.com [AWT].

The structure of the AWT is rather simple. Components are added to, and live within, Containers. The layout of the components within their containers is controlled by Layout objects. Available are a variety of event handling, menu, fonts, and graphics classes in addition to those two. Use of threads is allowed, as well as video, audio, I/O, and networking classes alongside the AWT. Figure 7.2 present the AWT subset associated with components and containers.
