I am making use of SWT_AWT bridge for bring my Swing application into
Eclipse/SWT (I cannot move higher from Eclipse/SWT 3.2 and hence I am using
SWT_AWT and not Albireo). While doing so, I referred to the article http://www.eclipse.org/articles/article.php?file=Article-Swi ng-SWT-Integration/index.html
by Gordon Hirsch and recently made use of his Example code given there. As
per this, all the necessary workarounds to make SWT_AWT work for you are
applied to a subclass object of Composite (EmbeddedSwingComposite in his
code). As per his recommendation I subclassed this and then used it in my
code. However, I am encountering NPE on the EventThread and while trying to
find solutions for the same I came across this: http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/platform-swt-dev/msg046 14.html which
suggests NOT to subclass Composite.
Is this a known issue with SWT_AWT and is there any workaround for the same?
