java.awt.* are the standard java UI components. but they can't be written entirely in Java language - they need some platform support (fro example zipping/ unzipping of a stream can be done in pure Java). so all java.awt.* components has some native stuff behind them - that is their peers
java.awt.peer.* package contains some definitions, of some native written classes.
most of the time you don't work with peers, you don't see them, you don't think of them ... only if you are planning to make your own Java VM for some platform, you'll have to implement the native peer classes it your platform native language (they use a lot of low-level system resources ...). all other classes (java.awt.* / java.io.* / ....) should be standard .
 
hope this helps you
