This talk will present an overview of the new features being added by the SWT team in Eclipse 3.7, along with some short demonstrations of how the features can be used in your RCP applications.

We will be focusing on two significant new areas of the SWT:

  • Touch and Gestures Touch has always been an important part of mobile computing, but now that technology is starting to find its way back to the desktop. We'll show how you can take advantage of gestures and touch-based input in your application, as well as providing an overview of touch technology on the desktop.

  • Application-wide menus Typically, new SWT features arrive in the form of new classes or API, but in 3.7 a new, innocent-looking API in org.eclipse.swt.Display presents an opportunity to architect your applications for a better cross-platform experience for your users. We will provide examples of how you can do this with minimum impact on your existing code.

Scott Kovatch is a committer on the Eclipse SWT project. His main focus for the last 3 years was the SWT Cocoa port, but he is now transitioning to full-time iOS development and Eclipse-based tools for iOS development. Scott also has expertise in Cocoa and Cocoa Touch application development for Mac OS X and iOS, as well as Java-based desktop technologies like Java Web Start, applets, and Java applications. He is based in Pleasanton, California.
