Anyone know what the oldest VM version that SWT/JFace would be compatible with? What is the oldest Java VM version I could simply launch a Shell Window on?

I'm not sure. Last I knew, though, Eclipse 3.0 required a 1.4 JDK.

Yeah, but that is probably due to non-GUI related code I would imagine more so than anything.

I've used SWT 2.1 on JRE 1.2.2 successfully. I actually use it on 1.2.2, 1.3, and 1.4 on Solaris, Windows, HP-UX, Linux, and AIX. My Mac test failed though.

Oh, and the thing I love about SWT and using different JREs is that the widgets always look the same. Swing on the other hand changes the looks of the widgets with every release.
