Hello eclipse community,

does anyone of you have experience in creating eclipse RCP software where Swing is used instead of Swing?

For any suggestions and links thank you in advance.

Best Regards,
Kosta

You mean Swing instead of SWT. First of all the main UI like Shell,
Menu, Toolbar are always rendered through SWT you can't change that in
Eclipse 3.x.

Afterwards you'll have to bridge between SWT and Swing using the
SWT-AWT-Bridge which is not always easy because you have 2 event
dispatchers, ... .

If you really want to use Swing I'd rather go with Eclipse 4.x or better
said the Eclipse 4.1 Application Platform which allows you to completely
render your UI using Swing so no bridgeing, constitent L&F, ... . "All"
you need to do is write a Swing-Renderer which though is not done yet is
technically possible without major problems as I've already shown [1].
