Hello All,
I am bit confused by the IBM SWT. My question is that If i am working in Eclipse or WSSAD 5.0 then my GUI based applicaiton will be using SWT by default if i am using DND features of Studio??? in this way we have to restrict ourselves with SWT and not to use Swing ?
Kindly comment on this.
Regards
Awais Bajwa

AFAIK, the GUI Builder in WSAD 5.0 only knows AWT and Swing for now, no SWT. So son't worry, your GUI will be AWT or Swing :-) (altough I don't see any problem with SWT).

Eclipse itself is coded using SWT, and so are its plugins. However, you can use its Java Development tools to develop your own applications that call Swing, AWT, SWT, or anything else you want including non-gui console and servlet apps.
