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 author carefully introduces all the basics here, starting with graphics programming and continuing with new JDK 1.1 features, such as the new event model, and information on working with individual AWT components like labels, buttons, and text controls. Along the way, the author highlights features that are new to JDK 1.1 (for instance, clipboard and printing capabilities, which are described in separate chapters). Although the book is primarily a reference for the AWT (a look-up section contains over 450 pages of the AWT class APIs), it also includes some short, clear programming examples on how to use the main features of AWT. Clearly written, this book is a good candidate for the library of any Java developer who needs to learn the nuts and bolts of AWT programming, including JDK 1.1-specific features. [via]
