Hello,

I am looking for someone who knows every single thing about the AWT. I am willing to pay some money for info about the AWT package. If you think you are the master of this package and willing to do some simple work for money, then post your email. Thanks

Since the AWT is and ABSTRACT Window Toolkit there exists a different  implementation for virtaully every machine. So how can someone know EVERY SINGLE thing about it? If you have specific problems here is the correct platform for FREE advice.

Isn't Java a machine independent and AWT one of its classes ?

Hi,

U see, there is this small thing in the field of computers that nobody can know everything about anything. So if u are looking for a guy who knows everything about AWT, or for that matter, any other field in Computers, u might not find one. The best way that people tackle a field in computers is that they concentrate on what they want rather than the whole stuff itself.

Now, u say that u r looking for detailed info about AWT. do the following:
1. Go to www.download.com
2. In the search box, enter the string "godfather".
3. It will return one hit, saying something about Java and Javabeans.
4. Click that and it will give a link called www.sfs-software.com
5. Click the link and download the .zip file.
6. Extrace the zip file using winzip or any other .zip extracting utility.
7. u will get a file called godfather.hlp

This file is a help file that contains all the details u want about the packages.

U can get the syntax of all the packages and classes till Java 1.1 release.
I am sure that this might solve most of your problems, if u are developing java applets. If somebody under u is doing it and wants help in this regard, u can give this file to him.

ALL THE BEST.

Hope this file suits ur needs.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

It's suppose to be, but you are not going to sell me that the exact semantics of all of the AWT is exactly the same on all machines because it isn't. I put Unicode in TextEdit on Windows 95 got ?s displayed. Fair enough, no Unicode support on 95, but then got ?s on reading the text back again. Is that a bug or a feature? The Java language and its run-time are well documented, but even in the best circles there is always room for interpretation and consequently divergence.

To cssathya,

My question was about AWT not anything in computer science or outside the computing world. My question was not even about Java but one of its classes. Secondly, AWT is not a big area where nobody can master. In the contrary it can easily be mastered. If I have the time I can do that with my own, not with outside help. All the info is there but the problem is the time- Nobody can do several things in the same time specially things like that which need a lot of time to experience.
