JFace forms the foundations of the Eclipse RCP user interface. The toolkit offers a framework for many common interface components such as image and font registries, dialog, preference and wizard frameworks based on the Standard Widget Toolkit (SWT). This talk covers how these components can be used to build an Eclipse Rich Client Platform application in a platform independent way.
We will go through a practical example of building an application from the ground up using JFace and SWT.
The Eclipse RCP UI consists of both plug-in extensions to the platform and reusable user interface components. This talk will provide a more advanced look into the way an RCP UI application can be built. We will cover some of the advanced components in the Platform UI and the plug-in extensions that access them by taking an example written using just the JFace and SWT frameworks and integrating it into the Eclipse platform.
