Hi,

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.

regards Axel

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.
