Anonymous Reader writes "One of the reasons for the success of the Eclipse platform is the performance of its user interface compared to other Java applications. The SWT is a key contributor to that success. SWT allows you to build cross-platform user interfaces that are as rich as Swing UIs and that perform as well as native UIs, but the toolkit does have a drawback: SWT is not compatible with AWT and Swing. The author offers a comprehensive, hands-on guide to porting a Swing application to SWT using extensive code samples to illustrate the techniques."
