I've heard that swt supports the integration of OLE-objects. Does your book adress this topic? Where do you see the special advantages of this integration? if there are any.

Our book doesn't address ActiveX control integration, since that is a Windows-only feature. We went back and forth on that a little, but with only so much space (we actually had to whittle back a number of pages), we couldn't justify adding space to something that works on only one platform. The focus of the book is on how to write cross-platform apps using Java, SWT, and JFace, so ActiveX became the odd man out.
