SwingWT is a 100% pure Java library which aims to be a free implementation of Swing and AWT
SwingWT 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).
Here are some key features of "SwingWT":
More responsive GUIs and faster startup times
Less RAM usage for applications
Many developers prefer the Swing API
Existing Swing applications don't need to be recoded
Mature Swing UI designers can be used
Developers deploying to *nix/Win32 can compile natively with GCJ and the applications can be distributed without a VM. Linux distribution makers could package many existing Java/Swing applications that previously could not be distributed in workable state.
SWT components can be directly accessed through the API, allowing mix and match (make Eclipse plugins with Swing!)
All platform benefits such as font sub-pixel decimation for LCD monitors (unavailable in Swing)
Use Swing on mobile devices!
The best of both worlds! New Swing components for JClosableTabbedPane, JCoolBar, JTaskTrayItem..
A FREE implementation of Swing you can redistribute and modify to suit your own requirements
Insulation from changes to the SWT APIs
Insulation from differences between SWT platforms
What's New in This Release:
Fixed default grey on table/list renderers
Fixed bad JList column sizing for win32
