I'd like to know if there is a drag and drop API that I can use (no JDK1.2). I don't know if swing provides it and that's basically what I need to know. Does it? (I just want to use drag and drop in the same app, no need to provide support for drag and drop across apps)

No, it doesn't. The current way to emulate the same effect is to first click what has to be
dragged and place the component where the user next clicks. This is what is done in the
beanbox of the Bean Development Kit of SUN. If I remember well, in JDK 1.2, Swing and
the Drag & Drop API are even not defined in the same package: the D&D api will be in
java.awt.dnd
