Does Swing work in a Unix environment?

Sandip Chitale

Yes and No. Yes - if JDK1.1 or better is supported Swing will work on that Unix platform. Swing is a 100% Java toolkit on top of AWT. No - if the JDK1.1 or better is not supported. It is my understanding that JDKs have been ported to most well known Unix flavours i.e. Solaris, SunOS, HPUX, AIX and also Linux.
