Is there an overhead to just doing import javax.swing.* rather than (in Eclipse) pressing Ctrl+Shift+M to add imports as necessary?

Thanks,

Tom.

Also, you may have classes that have the same name (unlikely but can happen) from different packages, so if you explicitly import the classes you need, then it's easier to differentiate between such classes.   Also, if you import an entire package then it can lead to compilation errors if such a collision occurs....
