Is "The Definitive Guide to SWT and JFACE" just a guide?

I just would like to know whether the book is designed for guiding the SWT developers how to do this and how to do that in SWT?

Or is it a introductory book for SWT?

As the title suggests, The Definitive Guide to SWT and JFace aims to address the totality of the SWT and JFace libraries. Since our goal was addressing cross-platform GUI applications, we left out platform-specific stuff (read: ActiveX embedding), and some late additions didn't make it in (e.g. adding icons to the system tray). It covers beginning through advanced SWT and JFace, however.

Hi Mr.Rob,
Since it covers beginning through advanced SWT and JFace, will it mean that a developers, who has this book, needs no other SWT book for any other coverage in SWT and JFace? Or does it mean that it introduces all topics concerning with SWT and JFace to the readers and the readers are on their own to find more resources for the topics that are in your book?

Thank you very much for your warm reply, Mr.Rob...

No book can answer all possible questions. But what the publisher could do is put a sample chapter on line so we can see what the book is like.
