Re: [platform-swt-dev] Mac OS X Port

Correct me if i am wrong..

Java-Cocoa is to Cocoa what SWT is to MFC.

Java-Cocoa  ----->    Cocoa
        SWT       ------>   MFC

This means that Apple has done their own implementation of "SWT".

Here are the options:

1) Replace Java-Cocoa by rewriting an SWT layer from scratch. (Most work)

2) Write SWT calls over JavaCocoa. (Least work but adds the extra layer).

3) Somehow get Apple involved to write SWT calls at the Java-Cocoa level. ( Maybe a pipe dream... who knows, maybe they'll open source JC )
