    Default Your prefered Java GUI API?

    I'm curious which Java GUI API people like using. Vote for the one you most commonly use (so if you use Swing 9/10 times, that'd be your vote )

    Pure AWT (i.e. no swing)
    Swing
    SWT
    JavaFX
    Other (please specify)

    TWL - Themable Widget Library of course

    Oh and I know this a question regarding Java API's but I really do prefer HTML/CSS and Javascript for GUI stuff.

    Swing forever! For the widest availability of code samples, and the best forum support.

    Coping with the bugs can be a pain though. By all reports, AWT is relatively bug free.

    Well, now that ie9 beta is out it won't be long before it goes final and gets released to the masses, it has ace support for all the new stuff and ie6 is almost dead and to be honest I don't do much backwards compatibility when it comes to websites.
