Draw2d outside Eclipse

You are looking for a 2D library on top of SWT ??

The GEF project comes with a graphical library called Draw2d. This library can be used in any SWT application. Of course such applications are Eclipse’plug-ins but you can also use Draw2d in a standalone Java application with an SWT UI.

When dowloading the GEF plug-ins you get an eclipse plug-in called: org.eclipse.draw2d. This plug-in is in fact a “classical” jar without any Eclipse’s extension and can be used in any java application as a “classical” jar.

Here is a link to an Eclipse article introducing Draw2d.

  1. Hi Anthony,

    Are you just speaking about the way to get draw2d through the Eclipse download site or also speaking of the way to use it in a standalone way ?
