You mentioned in an earlier thread that your book just covers basic SWT. Where can one find in depth coverage of the latest versions of both SWT and JFace?

There are entire books available on SWT, but for the latest info, you would need to go to the Javadoc or the Eclpse SWT newsgroup.

Ah yes, but most of the SWT books were written years ago and are not current with Eclipse 3.4. What's really needed is an up to date cookbook that addresses advanced issues. For instance, designing suffisticated layouts - similar to the perspectives that make us Eclipse itself.

Thanks for your previous response.
