Hopefully this is a simple question with an equally simpler answer...
I have an application, built using Swing, and AWT (ie, no SWT). I've had one tiny problem, which is the application icon in the title bar, which doesn't display properly using a Frame or JFrame - it only takes one image, so doesn't scale properly when it needs to.
I've found the perfect solution with SWT. If I use a Shell, I can set an array of different sized images, and cleverly the correct one gets chosen and displayed. This works brilliantly, as a separate application, so I now need to somehow get the main application 'into' my Shell. I don't have time to re-write all my Swing code (things like modal dialogs need a Component as their parent), so am hoping that there's some easy way to just put the main JFrame containing my application into a Shell, or something similar.
There are some very limited, platform-specific hacks to let you combine Swing and SWT in the same application. I definitely wouldn't think your issue warrants adding that level of headache to your application!
