I'm providing a plugin which is working fine since many years.
Yet i face an issue on Linux since the version 2020-09 (if i'm correct the first version installed with its own JRE).

In the code below the call to 'SWT_AWT.new_Frame' never returns but does not fire any error (the 'After' debug print won't be displayed).
Do you have any idea?


  • issue occurs with default JRE on Linux (version 14 in Eclipse 2020-09)
  • but same code is working if i update the eclipse.ini file to point to a JRE 11
  • and same code is also working on Windows with the default JRE version 14...

Code extract:
public class MyView extends ViewPart
public void createPartControl(final Composite parent)
Composite viewComposite = new Composite(parent, parent.getStyle() | SWT.EMBEDDED);
System.out.println("########## Before");
frame = SWT_AWT.new_Frame(viewComposite);
System.out.println("########## After");
