Drag and Drop in the Eclipse UI

In this article, we discuss the drag and drop facilities provided by JFace and the Eclipse platform UI. After reading this, you will know how to add drag and drop support to your own Eclipse views, and how that support will interact with the standard views in the Eclipse platform. Along the way, we'll also discuss that keyboard relative of drag and drop: cut and paste. You'll learn that putting your own custom objects on the clipboard is easy once you've figured out the basics of drag and drop.
