Building GUIs for Eclipse: SWT and JFace

Slides: SWT, JFace
Experts: Fisnik Kastrati, Heinrich Wendel
Contact: Daniel Speicher

Five points to remember

  1. Every SWT application requires a Display and one or more Shells.
  2. The Shell is a composite object; it can contain other composite objects.
  3. The Shell window must be opened to be displayed.
  4. JFace is Model-View-Controller everywhere
  5. It looks more complicated than it is
