Hi there,
I came across an interesting challenge where I need your opinion/advise. A (potential) customer of mine has a huge application written in C++ on MFC/Win32. They consider moving to Eclipse RCP.
Since it is too much code to port we would like to wrap the existing application modules into SWT widgets and reassemble them in RCP. Future enhancements would be native Eclipse and bit by bit we would phase out the C++ until we are platform independent.
So my question:
a) Anybody done something like this (and what were the lessons learned)
b) Could you point me to examples / code / books / links etc?
Thx a million
:-) stw

I'm not sure if this will help but in SWT, you can create your own custom components by creating composite components.
