SwingWT is an implementation of the Swing/AWT APIs over SWT.
Version: 0.89SwingWT is a 100% pure Java library which aims to be a free implementation of Swing and AWT. Unlike Swing, SwingWT drives native peer widgets for your platform from SWT. You can see a screenshot of the basic SwingWT demo here (Linux/GTK2) and here (MacOSX).

Â· More responsive GUIs and faster startup times
Â· Less RAM usage for applications
Â· Many developers prefer the Swing API
Â· Existing Swing applications don't need to be recoded

Â· SWT components can be directly accessed through the API, allowing mix and match (make Eclipse plugins with Swing!)
Â· All platform benefits such as font sub-pixel decimation for LCD monitors (unavailable in Swing)
Â· Use Swing on mobile devices!
Â· The best of both worlds! New Swing components for JClosableTabbedPane, JCoolBar, JTaskTrayItem..
Â· A FREE implementation of Swing you can redistribute and modify to suit your own requirements
Â· Insulation from changes to the SWT APIs
Â· Insulation from differences between SWT platforms
