SWT/JFace in Action
SWT and JFace-Eclipse's graphical libraries-enable you to build nimble and powerful Java GUIs. But this is only the beginning. With Draw2D and the Graphical Editing Framework, you can go beyond static applications and create full-featured editors. And with the Rich Client Platform, you can build customized work-benches whose capabilities far exceed those of traditional interfaces.
FSWT/JFace in Action covers the territory, from simple widgets to complex graphics. It guides you through the process of developing Eclipse-based GUIs and shows how to build applications with features your users will love. The authors share with you their intimate knowledge of the subject in a helpful and readable style.
This book encourages you to learn through action. Many code samples show you how SWT/JFace works in practical applications. Not only do these examples help you understand, they are working programs you can reuse in your own interfaces.
