This page contains blue sky thinking about the kind of things we would like to see in SWT's immediate future. This is a place to collect ideas - it does not represent a commitment to implement the ideas.

Cocoa Port

  • Port SWT to the Macintosh cocoa widget toolkit. This involves improving the prototype code [1] to be product quality. This involves rewriting the (PI) Platform Interface to model Objective-C and the cocoa class library in Java, then calling that Java code to implement SWT.


Theme Drawing API

Native Controls


  • Run SWT in a Browser
    • complete Flex, Dojo port
    • implement Silverlight port
    • complete JCL for the browser
    • new API to resolve desktop and web (, async image loading ...)
    • new API to animate layouts
    • new API for async dialogs
  • Declarative UI
  • CSS stying
  • Animation and Effects API
