Hi everyone,

I have a motif based C++ application that I am looking to port to Eclipse RCP. Right now, I want a quick and dirty port where all i care about is embedding the application into eclipse enviroment. I do have plans to re-write the application in SWT/java later on.

Is there any way in SWT to embed motif native apps?

There's not supported way, but it might be do-able on a per-platform
basis for a specific version of SWT. I've sent this to the SWT newsgroup.

Like Paul Webster tells you, there's is no way to embed your motif
application directly in SWT. We have the same problem, and we decide to
use the following solution.

We bundle the c++ application in a plugin and use a middleware (CORBA)
to enable communication between java and c++. There are to ways to do
this. A simple eclipse plugin or you can use the OSGi (Equinox) Foregin
Application Access (OSGi R4 Compendium Specifications).
