Re: [platform-swt-dev] C++ Toolkit for SWT

No. SWT is a lighweight wrapper around the system native widgets - all of the logic (and bugfixes) are in Java. So you'd need to fire up a JVM and go via Java if you wanted to do this.

The bindings for different OS and window kits are built in entirely separate libraries and are mainly thin wrappers around that system's widgets. If you wanted to compile natively, you might as well do the same approach.

Hi All,

I am a newbie to SWT.
Our project is mostly in C++ and we would like to develop the GUI in SWT as an eclipse plug-in.

Since SWT is in Java, I was wondering if there was an equivalent C++ version of SWT such that even the GUI elements could be coded in C++ only.
Please note that the application has to remain an Eclipse plugin always.
