For a new project I would like to use RPC (SWT, JFace) instead of
Swing. In this project we have to paint a lot of graphics (lines,
circles) in realtime. Unfortunately the 2D Library of Sun is not
available in SWT.
How about the GEF of SWT? Is this suitable for high performance
graphics? Does it supports DirectDraw and/or OpenGL?
Are there any good documentation?

Regards
Michael

GEF is neat, but it's more concerned with layout than with actual bit-wrangling. I noticed in my own work that the lines connecting nodes in a graph weren't anti-aliased and so looked very jaggy. I searched the Eclipse forums and found other people recently asking about this, and some vague replies that somebody "might work on GL and/or DirectX support". So the answer is no, not now.

There's an article at www.eclipse.org about using GL with SWT, and I have wondered how hard it would be to just use GEF for layout, but render things directly using GL. Haven't tried it yet, though.
