In appendix B OLE and ActiveX in SWT/JFace chapter, how do you related SWT with those OLE and ActiveX components? I just would like to know how those components are explained in the context of SWT/JFace topic? Thanks a lot...

Well, we actually had a third author (Laurent) do Appendix B for us, and I don't have any real experience with OLE/ActiveX/Windows development, so I'm not going to be able to get into too much detail here. But at a high level, the appendix contains a brief overview of COM, and a discussion of how to embed COM objects into your SWT application. It then discusses how to have your SWT application expose COM interfaces of its own, for use by other apps.

Does that answer your question?

Thanks a lot for you reply, instead of Laurent, who is not here... Yeah you answer is alright for me.. I just wanted to know what that Appendix is about and how those OLE and ActiveX are related to SWT applications...

I don't actually want to know about that Appendix in details... Thanks for the answer...
