Swt/Jface in Action: GUI Design with Eclipse 3.0 (In Action)by Matthew Scarpino
Synopses & Reviews
Covering Eclipse's new capability for building graphical user interfaces with version 3.0, the Standard Widget Toolkit (SWT) and JFace, this guide demonstrates how these award-winning tools have received broad support for creating desktop applications. Theory and practical examples reveal how to build GUIs that combine the look and feel of native interfaces with the platform independence of Java. This guide also shows how SWT makes use of the widgets provided by the operating system and describes how these components can be associated with events, containers, and graphics. With this knowledge, programmers can build fully featured user interfaces that communicate directly with the underlying platform. JFace's ability to simplify and organize the process of GUI design is then demonstrated, enabling developers to modify and adapt components, and separate their information from their appearance.
Book News Annotation:
Written for Swing developers and Java programmers, this guide shows how to design graphical user interfaces for applications with Eclipse 3.0, focusing on the model-view- controller paradigm for improving the reliability and maintainability of graphical applications. It explains the relationship between the standard widget toolkit (SWT) and the JFace library, the inheritance hierarchy used by their classes, and the methods that best translate across operating systems.
