Hello,

I'm developing an application based on Eclipse RCP. One of the applications editor's must act like a kind of "network graphical editor":

a) one must be able to drag and drop icons(may be labels or buttons) representing switches.

b) one must be able to move icons (may be labels or buttons) and place them in any location of the editor (the editor will be a canvas).

c) lines representing connectivity must be automatically drawn between each pair of connected switches.

I was wondering is SWT/JFace is enough to code all this functionality, or if I will need something more sophisticated as Draw2D and maybe GEF. If you have any suggestions, comments, I will be very grateful. Thanks for your time!!

Definitly step up to Draw2D and GEF. The kind of drawing you need to do
would be very cumbersome using straight SWT/JFAce.
