SWT: The Standard Widget Toolkit

SWT is an open source widget toolkit for Java designed to provide efficient, portable access to the user-interface facilities of the operating systems on which it is implemented.


Welcome to SWT! You may have come to this page looking for snippets (little code examples) or examples (big code examples like ControlExample); widget snapshots or documentation. Or maybe you want to request a feature, report a bug, or ask a question. Whatever the reason, you will find many resources here. Enjoy!
