    Eclipse Forms Article

    Monday, January 16, 2006 - 10:58 by Wayne Beaton
    Earlier today, I posted an article on Eclipse Forms by Dejan Glozic onto the Eclipse Corner Articles site. It’s pretty powerful stuff; using the Forms API, you can build user interface components that look and feel “browser-like”.

    As already referenced by Bjorn and Ward, this article by John Mark Walters makes for some very interesting reading.
