Eclipse e4 highlights: Featuring XWT

The e4 project is the next generation of Eclipse. e4 will provide a platform for pervasive component-based applications and tools. In this article, learn about some of the new features in e4, such as XWT and declarative styling. XWT is a new toolkit for defining the structure of SWT/JFace applications declaratively in XML, while leaving the business logic in Java code. It can separate the model and representation while saving much of the layout and UI-related code originally developed for your SWT/JFace application. An example application walks you through the XWT interface and data-binding feature.
