The Standard Widget Toolkit (SWT) is a fast and rich GUI toolkit for the Java
programming language. SWT provides efficient, portable and fast access to
native-looking controls and user interface facilities on the platforms where
it has been implemented.
The functionally is similar to Swing, but in addition, SWT has access to
some Operative System's widgets the former has not.
Swing provides native-looking control emulation, but built on top of the JVM.
In SWT, the UI code is native by using Java Native Interface (JNI) libraries,
so it runs significantly faster when providing native look and feel for
SWT is mainly used in the Eclipse Platform, but being an open source library,
it's used in external programs too.
This package provides the native libraries implemented using JNI.
