How do I use the Swing API?

I have netbeans installed and need to use the Swing API to do some simple GUI stuff in a program I am writing.  When I use the line:
import javax.swing.*;
The package javax.swing cannot be found.  How do I get over this problem.  I am using windows xp.

Thanks
Ashley :-)

Check that you don't have an active SDK of < 1.2

      Have already seen the requirements you need the jdk:
      http://www.netbeans.org/downloads/ide/index.html

      Did you already downloaded the jdk ?
      If not download the latest from this site.
      http://java.sun.com/webapps/download/DisplayLinks

      Then install it.

      If you are already using the jdk :

      1.) Make sure your using 1.2 ++
      2.) Install it in its default directory.

Hope this helps . . .

Of course, if you don't have *any* SDK at all, then you'll have to get one, although the link above seems rather odd.

  http://java.sun.com/getjava

should be better

      I dont think this is the link for jdk, Its only for an automatic or manual download of java virtual machine
      not a link for jdk :)
 
      This is much better :
      http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html

You don't need to upgrade your JDK, you can just install the Swing classes.
