Main plug-in for the SWT user interface library.
Setting the classpath:
To compile this project, you need to set the classpath specific for your operating and windowing system.
For this, rename one of the following files to `.classpath`:
* .classpath_win32 - Windows
* .classpath_cocoa - Mac OS X
* .classpath_gtk - Linux and all Unix variants
Similar class paths renaming should be done for ./examples/org.eclipse.swt.snippets/
To see these files, you may have to remove the filter for ".* resources":
* In the Project Explorer: view menu > Customize View... > Filters
* In the Package Explorer: view menu > Filters...
* **SWT Binaries**
You also need to clone the binary Git repository:
and import the project for your platform into your workspace.
Ensure that the fragment matching your windowingSystem.operatingSystem.cpuArchitecture
(e.g. org.eclipse.swt.gtk.linux.x86_64) is open in your workspace.
The fragments provide the platform-specific native libraries.
Assertions are added to the code. These don't run in production, but they do when:
* JUnits are ran, they turn on assertions by default.
* If you run a java run configuration and add '-ea' to the 'VM Arguments'
Assertions look like:
assert expression ;
assert expression : msg ;
