Hey guys,

How do I know if I should use a ava.awt. or java.util. as an import statement?

That depends...

  • Do you want to use the Scanner object in order to read input from the user/keyboard? If so, import java.util.*
  • Do you want to use the Graphics and Color objects in order to create cool pictures? If so, import java.awt.*
