Sorry if this isn't the right group for this question...

I am considering converting a large Swing application to SWT. We use the
MDI pattern. I know that SWT does not support this pattern, but I really
like the way Eclipse allows the user to drag tabs to create new split
windows and then back to being just tabs on a single pane. Is there sample
code for doing this (or where in the Eclipse source code is this
implemented)?

Thanks, Ralph

this should be a good start:
http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/Rich_Client_Platform

the newsgroup is eclipse.platform.rcp

also, in case you are not aware, you can embed your swing components
onto a SWT Composite using the SWT_AWT bridge, which may allow you to
migrate in a more controlled fashion. the eclipse.platform.swt
newsgroup should be able to help you with this.

enjoy!
