"Java AWT Reference is a complete programmer's guide and reference to the java.awt (Abstract Window Toolkit) package. It covers the both important versions of Java: the newest Java 1.1 and version 1.0.2.

"The first chapter provides a quick overview of Abstract Window Toolkit. It introduces users to the various GUI elements contained within the java.awt package and gives pointers to the chapters that provide more specific information about each component of java.awt.

"The next several chapters summarize the components that are parts of AWT. The book ends with a reference chapters which summarizes the information you need to know about every class of AWT and provides concise summaries of each method, class and package.

"Note that this book assumes that the user is already familiar with the Java language and class libraries. The book contains a lot of illustrations and many complete examples showing how to use AWT. Programmers don't need to read this book from cover to cover. It is a good book for daily reference. This book provides a complete set of reference materials on the Java language and AWT. The Java AWT Reference is essential to anyone involved with Java."
