    I don’t mind you replacing a French Impressionist painter with SWT, but I can’t get to the configuration center at work. How else can I get the new SWT replacement?

    Are the tutorials the same for SWT as for Swing/Matisse. Are they compatible?

    Sorry that you are seeing this issue.

    1. Can you please share the Installation Details from MyEclipse > Installation Summary > Installation Details ?

    2. Are you behind a firewall/proxy ?

    3. Can you please let us know what exact issue you are seeing when switching to the MyEclipse Configuration Center ?

    4. Clear the contents of the .log file which is located at <workspace dir>/.metadata/.log. Replicate the issue and copy paste the contents of the .log file here for us.

    5. Go to Help > Help Contents > MyEclipse Learning Center > Developing Swing Applications > Overview to find the tutorial for SWT/Swing.

    I installed SWT Designer and Swing Designer from the Config Center.

    I created a Java project then attempted to add a SWT Application Window. It told me to add the .jars or create a SWT/J<something or other> project.

    I can find on wizard or anything for creating a SWT/J<something or other>.

    Do you not yet have any kind of tutorial for this?

    This is the message I’m getting…

    “If you wish to use SWT, please add the appropriate SWT jars to your classpath, or create a new SWT/JFace Java Project. You may also create a plug-in project and allow PDE to manage the classpath for you.”

    I do not see a SWT/JFace Java Project anywhere?

    BTW, there’s no help available for SWT/JFace in the help content file. For SWT, they just show how to install the designer(s).

    You can find the SWT/JFace Java Project under New > Other > WindowBuilder > SWT Designer.

    Attached is the screenshot for your reference.

    There is a SWT/Swing Designer Overview in the Help under MyEclipse Learning Center but it is not complete. I have raised a PR for the team to expand the help.

    There is a quick start guide in the Help > Help contents, under WindowBuilder Pro User Guide. You can also refer to this link for more info :

    http://help.eclipse.org/indigo/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.wb.doc.user%2Fhtml%2Findex.html for Eclipse Indigo.

    I suggest you also look up on the web for detailed tutorials.

    Let us know if you see any issues.
