Never before has the GUI world been so fragmented. In the Web space, we are confronted with an alphabet soup of AJAX technologies and frameworks. On the desktop, the operating system vendors offer multiple native toolkits. Nothing is portable or compatible, not even the progamming language. What a mess! Into this mess, bravely goes SWT.

Silenio Quarti is the technical lead for SWT. His areas of expertise include graphics, widgets, threading, optimization and operating system programming. He has been intimately involved with both the design and implementation of SWT for many years.

Steve Northover is the father of SWT (The Standard Widget Toolkit). His interests include programming languages, API design, operating systems, user intefaces and code optimization.
