Hi,
Swt implementation has internal package:
org.eclipse.swt.internal

Its implementation differ on platforms but is it acceptable to use it
outside org.eclipse.swt package for a specific platform?

Especially is the api going to change inside ie. 3.0 version of eclipse?

TIA
m.

You should not access internal packages, since they differ between platforms
and are not guaranteed to remain compatible between releases. If there is
some functionality that you need that is missing from swt's public api then
you may wish to log a Feature Request with Platform - SWT. Alternatively,
you may also be able to just copy the internal part(s) that you need to your
own package so that you're not affected by future swt changes.
