    J2S looks great...
    What support is there for tables (multi-columns)?
    I tried some of the SWT example snippets but they did not work?

    THANKS!!

      What will J2S' Table support can be found in the SWT's Table API Javadoc:
      http://help.eclipse.org/help31/nftopic/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/reference/api/org/eclipse/swt/widgets/Table.html

      J2S will try to implement all features of Eclipse SWT (Currently we are working on SWT 3.1, but later we will try to catch up with SWT 3.2 and SWT 3.3).

      And in SWT 3.1, feature of "multi-columns" seems not be implemented. So J2S SWT 3.1 will not support that feature.

      For SWT snippets, those example snippets at
      http://j2s.sourceforge.net/swt/snippets/
      are not all supported yet. Because J2S SWT is still under development. The widgets Button, Group, TabFolder, Label, Text, ProgressBar are well-tested. Snippets related with these widgets should work. And stay tunned for more J2S updates.

        This is a great start!!!

        Your web site states a set of chosen snippets that work fine... but...
        I looked at these and they don't behave like SWT..
        Snippet8 -- create a tree (lazy) -- does not work
        Snippet38 -- create a table (columns, headers, lines)

        HOPE YOU GET TO THE NEXT STAGE FOR SWT 3.2 & 3.1

        Did not see anything related to drop down lists, is that correct?

        thanks
