I am in the middle of trying to figure out which API to focus on the most, jogl or lwjgl.

Can someone give me some benefits/drawbacks of both?

Basically, in my mind, it boils down to one thing. Do you need any swing/awt components? If not, LWJGL, otherwise JOGL.

Pretty much. Those are the philiosophical design differences between the two. Both are well supported, both have running applications, both are open source, and both have strong user communities. My dream is that at some point in the future the two would be similar enough that they could merge without losing any of the focus of either.
