As SWING is supposed to be pure java, you can use
either Sun's AWT to work with or Classpath's AWT.
Whatever you build, should be compilable against both,
as long as it stays pure java and only uses the
specified AWT apis.

I'd recommend using Sun's AWT, if you want to focus on
writing a SWING implementation, and using Classpath's
AWT if you want to focus in improving the state of AWT
support in Classpath first.
