Preface

Preface

In this book, you'll find information about the Standard Widget Toolkit, part of the Eclipse project. Eclipse is an open source Integrated Development Environment (IDE) project supported by IBM and others. The purpose of the Eclipse project is to provide a standardized development environment across platforms.

The Standard Widget Toolkit (SWT) provides a set of Java class files and native code libraries that permit the developer to deliver graphical user interfaces that completely mirror the look and feel of the target platform. If your code is executing on the MS Windows operating system, the interface elements will have the identical look and feel of applications that are compiled natively to Windows. If your code executes on the Mac OS, it will have the identical look and feel of all applications compiled natively to that platform.
