I have played around with swt the last week.
Did not know where to start first.
Here are the most usefull resources I found:
a wiki
code snippets 1
end of page:
code snippets 2, end of page
3rd of 3 part article, very good I found
german only tutorial
There is help, like some api docs, in the help/help contents of eclipse : plug in developer guides.

At the moment it is really hard to use Swing in SWT... SWT isn't built on any preexisting GUI toolkit (i.e. AWT or Swing) so some stuff has to be done down in the native code to 'link' the Swing/AWT stuff to SWT. They're probably working on it, but it's not done yet.

Here's the info from the Eclipse FAQ about this.
