pointers/examples will be highly appreciated.

Also any experiences relating to the development will be helpful.

No, it's not possible to develop applets in SWT - unless you can guarentee that every client will have SWT installed and properly configured on their system. Then you can use SWT_AWT and bridge from AWT to SWT in your applet. Of course, then you still won't be able to use the applet on MacOS X.

You can do Java Web Start applications in SWT however. All the platform specific libraries (native and otherwise) can be downloaded through web start for whatever the client's platform. This is a terrific way of doing things, but it's not exactly an applet. :-)
