17.2.4 The Rest of the Chapter

The rest of this chapter will be devoted to describing the basic classes of SWT by converting one of the application classes from the previous chapter from Swing to SWT. We will not attempt to explain the operating principles of GUIs. For an introduction to GUI programming, see the previous chapter on Swing. It introduces the concepts and programming principles for GUI programming in Java. SWT is functionally similar, although quite spartan, providing only basic windows, controls, and events.

Eclipse also contains a family of higher level user interface classes, known collectively as JFace, that provide UI features such as dialogs, wizards, font handlers, and images. We will not cover JFace in this book.
