How can I resize two adjacent widgets by draging an edge of a widget or
the boundary between them?

There's no native way of doing this because this functionality isn't supported natively by any WS. The only way to do something like this would be to emulate it yourself with some sort of canvas which would trap mouse events and then call the setBounds(Rectangle) method on the widget(s) in question. Alternatively, I think GEF supports something like this, but I'm really not sure. Take a look at VE for an example.

Or do you mean a Sash where you have two widgets filling the sash with a
line between the two which can be dragged up or down (left or right) and
have one widget grow bigger while the other grows smaller?
