What do I require to run my SWT component ? (Sun JRE/ IBM JRE/ Eclipse framework/ Some jars)

Hi Experts !

  I am developing a plugin using SWT using Eclipse IDE. I can run and see its result then and there.

  But I want to ask, whether my plugin can be run without Eclipse framework also? If yes how?

  Can I run it using just Sun JRE or IBM JRE or Taking some swt jars?

Thanks a lot,
- Namit

Yes, it would. You need to keep platform related native libraries (dll, so) on the path in order to run it correctly

Azureus (http://azureus.sourceforge.net/) is good example of standalone SWT application

Ajay,

  Are the native libraries included in Sun JRE or IBM JRE? Or I have to include it manually?

Thanks,

All extra libraries must be installed separately like all 3rd party products.

these native libraries are SWT native libraries for different platforms.

Does'nt IBM 1.5 JRE already includes swt support? So if I use something like it I donot have to do anything manually?

... and that's why SWING remains popular, it is everywhere JAVA 4, 5 or 6 is.

I checked for you:  SWT must always be added.

SWT is not part of JRE. So, its NOT part of any JRE you download (as JREs follows the specs)

... but some people do hope that SWT will be accepted as a replacement for SWING.
Refer to the descriptions in www.eclipse.org
... and ECLIPSE is a satelite from IBM.
But for the time being ....   NO

Hi sciuriware !

  I understand that swt is not part of the Sun JRE. Are you very sure that it is not part of IBM JRE either (1.5)?

Thanks,

Yes, because ECLIPSE (who invented it) supplies versions for IBM platforms; have a look at there.

;JOOP!
