Hi,

I'm developing an application in SWT that will run on both Linux and Mac
that needs to incorporate scientific plots (1d, 2d and possibly 3d in the
future).

I've seen certain libraries using Swing such as JFreeChart
(http://www.jfree.org/jfreechart) and SGT
(http://www.epic.noaa.gov/java/sgt) which provide the type of
functionality I need but the problem is running Swing in an SWT
application on Mac (bug 67384).

Could you tell me if:

1) There are any native SWT libraries which provide similar functionality.
2) Whether there are any work-arounds for the mac-swt-swing problem or if
there are any developments in this area.

Many thanks,
Stuart

have you checked out GEF? It may not be specific enough for your needs.

Graphical Editing Framework (GEF) has been designed to allow editing of user
data, generally referred to as the model, using graphical rather than
textual format.

Hi Kent/Stuart,

You may want to review the chart library/UI being built in the BIRT
project.

Check it out at:
http://www.eclipse.org/birt/

Source available (under /source) at:
http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/?cvsroot=BIRT_Proje ct

Post your chart specific questions at:
http://www.eclipse.org/newsportal/thread.php?group=eclipse.b irt

Features:
Device-independent chart output (SWT, SWING, Image file formats, etc)
Extensible (add your own chart types)
... and much more
