But the objects I'm mostly referring to are JOptionPane, JPanel, and all of the J(something) objects.


The reason for the "J" is probably that Sun needed some way to descriminate between the old java.awt component set that used the native platform for rendering and the new javax.swing components. I.e. there was allready a java.awt.Panel when JPanel was named.
