FreeBSD supports Java and has for some time. As far as I know, any JRE or JDK based on Java 1.4.2 or 1.5.0 will support both AWT and Swing. A recent development made it much easier to obtain and run run "native" FreeBSD java packages, obviating the need in most cases to run a Linux binary and/or to compile the JDK from source.
