i am making first steps into using JAVA swing gui-elemnts in my programs.
Someone warned me about JAVA, that the standards of language change a lot more rapidly than e.g. m-code changes, so that one has to watch out much more carefully after syntax, versions, releases etc. of java classes and standards.
To all you JAVAx.swing programmers out there: is that true? Am i spoiled by m-code, that still runs nearly unchanged two, four, eight releases later? What would i have to watch after, to make no faults in this field?
