I have been using SWT for a few months now and I'm not very happy with the documentation;

instead of ranting about it, i'd rather contribute to improving it.

For example: I found rather late that JFace Actions had been deprecated and it was rather hard to find out I should use Commands instead. I'd like to add pointers to the documentation, since there are none.

tree.deselectAll() does not fire a selection event, which I think should be noted on the documentation as well

anyways, how could I contribute or discuss the edition of documentation?

Thanks Bernardo, for showing interest in contributing to Eclipse.
Eclipse Bugzilla is the first place to suggest/discuss any proposed changes in code/API documentation.
For this you need to register to Eclipse Bugzilla ( ) and report a bug against respective component(SWT/UI) in Eclipse.

If you plan to make any code change/fix any bug in SWT, then you need to setup SWT dev environment, refer wiki:
