Hi.
Besicaly, we can jar our Swing application and distribute it, But how to create a standalone SWT-based application ?
I use RSSOwl (which it is based on SWT), this app packaged as an exe file.

If youre using eclipse try downloading fat jar plug in. Then create a folder, and put
1) the swt dll file
and
2) the jar file

in the top directory.

That worked for me ...

Another, more sophisticated option is to use Java Web Start.
