Thanks for the info, I'll pass it on to our team.

Yes I noticed this, but since the java_swt method also works here (and
therefore in all our supported environments) I'll stick with that until
I'm forced to change should Apple or Eclipse drop the use of the

Cool stuff, this did the trick. A worthy note though, it only looks like
the window title cannot be reset once the display is initialised, so you
have to run this API early, preferably before the construction of the
display. I think this behaviour may have more to do with Mac OS X than SWT.

jellyscript is an apache commons framework for referencing object methods
and properties from an xml type script. We use it to construct our GUI (we
also call SWT APIs from it too). Unfortunately this issue ruined the
elegance of this solution because I was forced to make the
Display.setAppName() call way before the jelly stuff initialised and
outside the jelly framework. Oh well.
I know jellyscript GUIs can be debugged from within Eclipse (Marcus
Crafter, a regular contibutor to these forums has managed it), but I
believe it's currently quite a challenge.
Many thanks Andre for helping me sort out this issue.
All the best

Yes, it is supposed to work like this on all platforms, so there seems to be
no way to change the app name after the Display has been created.
However, at least on MacOS X Apple introduced two command line options
-Xdock:icon=<path to icon file>
Today they only have an effect if AWT is used.
But I've already proposed to support the latter option from within SWT too.
Now I'm convinced that the first option should be supported too. With this
you could set the app's name via the command line or from the application

Thanks for the intro.
