Reproduce steps:
1. On RHEL7, 64-bit eclipse SDK, create RCP based view.
2. when clicking on the check box(check /uncheck), the event fires to expand the tree view.
3. The tree view has to expand and show the child nodes(elements)

the same working fine during the same operation in Windows 10, however, it's not working in the Linux environment.

somthing wrong when flow of code inside the linux enviornment:
at public abstract class org.eclipse.jface.window.Window implements org.eclipse.jface.window.IShellProvider
and public class org.eclipse.swt.widgets.TypedListener implements org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Listener

Question :

1) Is this because the libs of Jface related in Linux have some issues?
2)Whereas in a window operating system on click of the check box the tree view redraws/refresh working fine as expected.

Eclipse uses SWT for its user-interface, JFace are extentions to SWT. SWT has native backends for each supported OS. That is, there is a different implementation on Windows and on Linux (which is based on GTK). So there can be differences in behavior (and bugs) on the different platforms. If you think you have found a bug, please report it here:, as component choose UI or SWT. If you can attach a piece of code to reproduce the issue, that would be really helpful.
