Does anybody know, if there is something like an official statement from Sun regarding SWT/JFace? Will for example NetBeans support SWT? I'm just curious if there is any support from Sun or if SWT/JFace is completely IBM driven at the moment.

Regards,

Jan

I'm not sure what you mean by "Netbeans support SWT" unless you are talking about the GUI builder.

Any IDE can support developing SWT apps because it's just a matter of including the JAR file and the native library when executing.

Unless Sun adopts SWT I don't see Netbeans supporting it in the GUI builder any time soon. But there are plenty of Eclipse plugins that do visual GUI's using SWT.
