Re: [eclipse-dev] Eclipse Implementation Question


There's a fairly good description of the rational behind why we did things the way we did at:
        http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/~checkout~/platform-swt-home/index.html

Your comment about not getting window resizing is strange to me. You should be getting it if your window system supports it. Are you running with "opaque" for the window size animation (assuming linux) or "show window contents while dragging" on win32?

I'm new to the list, and had  quick question to the developers about their philosophy behinds its implementation. Mostly I'm curious about the reason for the native implementations for all the seemingly complex components (SWT for example). Was this because you couldn't get the performance you wanted out of Java no matter what, or was it to make Eclipse a more *native* app and play nicer under the platforms it supports?
 
At any rate, I was a Netbeans junkie until I found Eclipse, I absolutely love it. I am a little sad that I can't get some of the features you have with pure java (such as real-time window resizing, instead of that drag, drop, and watch draw beahvior in java).
 
Nice work!
