What is SwingWT?

发表于2004/12/31 13:54:00  1318人阅读

SwingWT offers many benefits:

  • More responsive GUIs and faster startup times
  • Less RAM usage for applications
  • Many developers prefer the Swing API
  • Existing Swing applications don't need to be recoded
  • Mature Swing UI designers can be used
  • Developers deploying to *nix/Win32 can compile natively with GCJ and the applications can be distributed without a VM. Linux distribution makers could package many existing Java/Swing applications that previously could not be distributed in workable state.
  • SWT components can be directly accessed through the API, allowing mix and match (make eclipse plugins with Swing!)
  • All platform benefits such as font sub-pixel decimation for LCD monitors (unavailable in Swing)
  • Use Swing on mobile devices!
  • The best of both worlds! New Swing components for JClosableTabbedPane, JCoolBar, JTaskTrayItem..
  • Insulation from changes to the SWT APIs
  • Insulation from differences between SWT platforms


See the SwingWT Javadocs.
