Swing or Swt

Postby spadovan » Sun Sep 02, 2007 11:43 pm


i'm trying to make an evaluation of the Java frameworks for developing user interface.
We'd like to create or own application framework which will implement our application model, and it should be simple to use for the end-programmers and of course productive.
What would you suggest us to choose between Swing and Swt ?
I know it isnt a simple question...but i try anyway

You can pretty much build any type of application with either.

The Eclipse RCP framework (SWT-based) is very nice for building entire applications.
