ErrorDialog and IStatus [message #465373] Sun, 11 December 2005 21:59 Go to next message

I wanted to use [org.eclipse.jface.dialogs.ErrorDialog] in my app but it
uses [org.eclipse.core.runtime.IStatus], which is not part of SWT package
but eclipse distribution itself. Any idea why ? Oversight or what ? .... A
bit confusing ....

JFace is not SWT.
So why the confusion?

Parts of JFace use interfaces from the Eclipse runtime jar. You can
include this jar with your application, or simply remove those parts
from JFace which you don't need.

To make this easier for applications, the Eclipse runtime has recently
been split up more so that now the parts of the runtime that JFace
depends on are in their own separate, and much smaller (like < 80k), jar
file in the Eclipse distribution.

For more information, you can try asking about this on the
eclipse.platform newsgroup, or just poke through a recent integration
build of Eclipse 3.2.
