SWT On PocketPC - problems with Table, GridData.verticalIndent [message #467651] Fri, 03 February 2006 00:11 Go to next message

Hi,

I've had limited success running SWT on PocketPC. I'm running J9 Personal
Profile 1.0. I'm able to get a simple Hello World to run, and another
display with a series of buttons and menu bar. This leads me to believe I
have a valid jar and dll. I've used win32-ce-arm-ppc.zip from both the 3.1
and 3.0.2 release (thought maybe 3.1 introduced problems).

The first error was a NoSuchFieldError for GridData.verticalIndent. That was
easy enough to solve by removing it from my code. So the first questions
are, is this a normal problem, am I doing something wrong, is it a new
field, etc.

Then I try to display a table widget. I get a NoSuchMethodError for
..../win32/OS.SendMessage(...win32/LVCOLUMN). Is the table widget supported?

One of the features I'd really like to be able to use is the Browser widget.
I'm hoping that since PocketPC supports IE, there is native browser support.

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

Do NOT use Personal Profile if you're attempting to create an SWT app. The
current implementation of PPro uses a stripped down subset of an old version
of SWT which is ahead of the swt jar you're really trying to use in the
path. Ideally, you should run SWT using Foundation.

Stef,
Thanks for your reply. I will investigate using Foundation and the
differences between Personal Profile. I'll need to make sure the rest of my
app (using JDBC and HTTPConnection) doesn't break.

For now, I was able to get it working, at least part of it. It wasn't
pretty.

What I did was add the contents of swt.jar to ppro-ui.jar (copy to desktop,
unjar,swt, add to ppro-ui, copy back to PPC). I had tried various
permutations of putting swt.jar in my application directory and in the java
ext directory. Apparently, ppro-ui.jar was superceding. I wouldn't be at all
surprised (in fact, I hope) if there is a better way.

This worked with the smaller ppc jar which uses swt-win32-3138.dll. I was
able to load the Table widget. However, still no Browser widget.

Since then, I've downloaded eSWT to get Browser functionality. I've got it
sort of working (the widget displays but text is not showing up). I put the
eswt-converged.jar into the PPC J9 ext directory and didn't have to go
through any of the aforementioned craziness. But I will be looking at using
Foundation if that's the correct approach. I'm in some new territory and
there's much to sort out (SWT, JDBC, HSQL, RMI/HttpConnection, etc).

Using Foundation is absolutely the right approach.
In the meantime, as a (better) workaound you can put the SWT jar ahead of
Personal Profile using the following:
-Xbootclasspath/p:swt.jar

The 'p' prepends whatever you list to the bootclasspath. Therefore, you're
copy of SWT supercedes what's included in PPro. This may break PPro, but
then I would hope you're not trying to use AWT at the same time in your app.

ok, ok,ok I'll use Foundation. I promise.

eSWT seems very promising right now.

Thanks for your help.
