I did not see Swing or AWT marked as deprecated in OpenJDK. So removal
at this point is out of the question. I doubt that Oracle will remove
the whole desktop module from their JDK, so even Oracle JDK will most
probably carry AWT+Swing.

My reading is a bit less *heaven will fall*:

 * The java plugin is dead (thanks go to the browser makers)
 * Java Web Start is mostly dead and was never open source. Interested
   parties could place their money on Red Hat, which might have its
   open source successor (Iced Tea Web)
 * JavaFX is not part of the Oracle JDK anymore
 * The future of Swing and AWT is not yet decided

To read more into the white-paper is just reading tea-leaves. It might
be fun, but the future is not told there.
