On Amazon, a line about the book states:


You�ll first get a rundown of Java GUI toolkit history. Then the book explains why SWT is superior


Does it explain why it is superior to ?? Swing, AWT, both?

Also, how much of your book is API versus showing us how to actually use the toolkit?

It explains why it's superior to Swing or AWT. Your mileage, or opinions, may vary

The book covers the API, but it demonstrates with both explanation and code how to use that API. The hope is that you use the book as a tutorial, to learn how to use SWT and JFace, and then you continue to use the book as a reference.
