there are 3 possibilities:

a) Take swing 1.1.1 from sun and put it in your CLASSPATH. See 
FAQ/FAQ.awt for details.

b) Try to get SwingWT working with Kaffe. SwingWT is an implementation 
of Swing over SWT, the toolkit used by Eclipse.

c) Help out with the AWT merge from GNU Classpath, which includes the 
beginnings of a free software Swing implementation.
