Eclipse and SWT

For those of you who have tried on Eclipse which I introduced in my last post, How about CFMX on Eclipse?, have probably noticed somthing unusual for a Java GUI application, it's extremely fast!

In an email response, Rohan, author of CFEclipse, kindly answers the question that underneath, Eclipse uses SWT for GUI manipulation. What's SWT (Standard Widget Toolkit)?

SWT (and JFace) are GUI components originally developed by IBM for the open source Eclipse project. Unlike Swing or AWT, SWT relies on native widgets of the underlying operating system which results in Java applications which look and feel like native applications.

I have a directory php script site/blog. It pretty much covers directory php script related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time :-)
