Hi Kelvin,

Swing is only supported on the gtk backend.

You may be able to run Swing  applications on other backends using Sun's 
old separate Swing implementation for Java 1.1. (it was called swing 
1.1.1-FCS, I think), but since that implementation was not open source, 
it's not possible to support it adequately.

You'll need to use the gtk peers, which are coming from GNU Classpath. 
They require a recent version of the gtk libraries.
