I found on the eclipse site where we can download just the SWT plugin if we don't use Eclipse. But I couldn't find just JFace. Is there anywhere to download JFace without downloading Eclipse IDE?

Thanks.

Nope--you've got to download Eclipse to get JFace. Note that you must have SWT as well for JFace to work.

Well then, does it mean that we cannot develop SWT application with JFace, using other IDEs? I think JFace is kinda proprietary MVC abstraction of Eclipse Community... Or IBM's?

You can use other IDEs, just need some jar files from Eclipse.

I don't see any link that I can download JFace... That's what Gregg is also finding for...

Mr.Rob also confirmed already that JFace comes only with Eclipse...

Anyway, welcome to the Ranch!!!

You must download Eclipse to get JFace, but you don't need to use Eclipse to develop SWT & JFace applications. You can use anything you like!
