Description

After Java 1.6 update 12, it is acceptable to mix Swing and AWT. In many cases, AWT is superior, because it makes use of operating system specific widgets, which cause less cognitive dissonance in users. We should require users to upgrade their copy of Java to at least Java 1.6 update 12 and evaluate all of the situations in which it would be advantageous to use AWT widgets instead of Swing.
