question on 2d package [message #462506] Thu, 13 October 2005 08:48 Go to next message

I am working on an eclipse application and want to display simple 2
dimensional shapes using lines. I would also like to be able to zoom in
and out on the shapes and pan across them without the line thickness
changing and when you click on the line it could display information
about itself such as length, angle etc. I am new to SWT and i believe
they have a graphics capability, would this be adequate?

Another option would be to use the swing 2D api as i believe you can now
add a swing component to the an SWT one, would this be a better option?

Later on in this applications development i would like to add 3D support
using the SWT open GL or the SWT with JOGL. Would i be better off
learning the 3D libraries first and then uses them to display the 2D
images and if so which Libraries would be the best to use?

regards

GEF should be able to cover all your 2D needs- not so sure about 3D.
