Hi,

At work we are studying SWT and I must say it has given us a great impression so far. My question is: does anyone has real experience using SWT ? what are its main problems when developing demanding desktop products ?

Thanks

The main problem can be its cross-platform issues. However if you plan to go windows-only way and your gui system will not be too complicated you may do SWT - it is slightly faster on slow machines - but again it all depends upon you as a programmer. SWT may be slow as hell and Swing can just fly.

Try googling:

for more information.
