SWT Browser on Swing JPanel?

hi all i need some advice from you guys that use eclipse as their IDE.

i need to open a browser within my project as one of the requirements and i found something called JDIC,but it doesnt seem to be working for me.
However i heard that SWT is able of accomplishing that? With the browser component and also i need the OLE controls that it i decided to try using SWT for this.
But the problem is my entire project is written in swing! and as i am relatively new to the JAVA scene i am clueless about this:/

what i would like to know is if it is possible to put the SWT browser on a Swing JPanel? i think it is possible to do it th other way round,but my entire GUI has already been built
using Swing and it would be really tedious for me to learn how to use SWT just for this.

any references and links will help. Thanks in advance for your help!
