As per the Eclipse Development Process
< http://www.eclipse.org/org/documents/Eclipse%20Development%2 0Process%202003_11_09%20FINAL.pdf>,
we are notifying the Eclipse Membership-at-Large of the intent to
propose the Desktop Integration Project as a Technology sub-project. A
brief description of the project is below. A draft project proposal is
at http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/eclipse-dip/index.htm

*Data Integration Project*
Much of the technical success of the Eclipse Platform can be attributed
to its practical integration and use of platform specific services and
technologies. The most notable of these is the Standard Window Toolkit
(SWT), which uses platform specific user interface technologies where
possible to delivery a high quality, native, user interface experience.
Other platform-specific Eclipse features include: a partial OLE/COM
bridge, the SWT_AWT bridge for co-hosting Swing / AWT and SWT
user-interfaces within one another, the embedded Eclipse Internet
Explorer Web Browser, and recent SWT mechanisms for interacting with the
Windows System Tray and creating custom shaped windows.

Eclipse demonstrates the tremendous value available to Java developers
when local services and technologies are integrated into a Java
framework or application in an intelligent and user-centered manner. The
number of platform-specific integration requirements is expected to
increase as a result of the growing popularity of the RCP and its
positive influence in a renewed effort to deliver native Java desktop
applications.

Unlike many of the Eclipse proposals, whose technical and implementation
scope is limited to pure Java technologies, this project concentrates on
enhancing Eclipse through the use of non-Java technologies and services.
Specifically, this project seeks out opportunities to integrate
high-quality native services and technologies that will significantly
benefit the Eclipse developer community.

We foresee this project serving as an incubator for technologies and
techniques used by the Eclipse Platform team, supplemental technologies,
frameworks, RCP application developers that need tighter integration,
and for native application developers that seek to leverage Eclipse
technologies within their products.

We look forward to input and discussion from the Eclipse community.
