Standard Widget Toolkit definition java, graphics
(SWT) The Eclipse Foundation's framework
for developing graphical user interfaces
. SWT is written in explicitly standard Java but uses the Java Native Interface
to talk to a platform
-native GUI library. SWT is the third major attempt to give Java a decent GUI framework, following AWT
. Of the three, SWT is the most consistent with the native GUIs but its programming model is hard to port to non-Windows platforms.
