Class 11: Java's Abstract Windowing Toolkit

Back to Inheritance and Interfaces. On to Java's Abstract Windowing Toolkit, Revisited.

Held Wednesday, February 10

Notes


Narrative

Many of you indicated that you preferred that I read nicely written lecture notes than that I employ my normal hyper-kinetic ``whatever comes to mind'' style. Hence, today I will simply read aloud, rather than lecture, discuss, and lead recitation.

Our topic for today is Java's Abstract Windowing Toolkit, also known as the ``AWT''. Using the AWT, you can build interesting and useful graphical applications with all the conveniences of modern GUI (``graphical user interface'', often pronounced ``gooey'') applications, including buttons, menus, windows.

Yes, my attempt to use this teaching style is intended as a joke. Do the lab. Pick whichever sections seem most interesting. We'll break about fifteen minutes before the end of class to discuss what we've learned (or to decide to do fifteen more minutes of work). Everything you need to know about the AWT is in the lab.

Lab

Do whichever problems seem most interesting. (Hopefully, you will have read the lab in advance.)
