Tuscany, SCA, and Swing

Hello everybody,

After a google search and a quick tour of this forum, I found no topic dealing with a Swing app "swimming" in a SCA app.

I discovered Apache Tuscany a few weeks ago and found it very powerful. The encapsulation of thread-management and the way you can make every component atomic absolutely amazing for unit testing and "separation of purpose".

But a Swing app needs to manage its own threads, and I'm scary about compatibility between SCA thread management and Swing app thread management... What if a component ask the "View" component to display something... The caller will call from a Thread that is not the EDT.

Any idea of how to make that work? I dont need a full example code, just to know if it is crazy or not

++

David.

Ok, I think I found the answer. It looks like the SwingUtilities.invokeLater make the invocation of the inner code to happen in th EDT. Mixing a component that calls this utility method, linked to the object that handles the Swing interface should work fine.
