Standard Widget Toolkit

The Standard Widget Toolkit is a graphical widget toolkit for use with the Java platform. It was developed by Stephen Northover at IBM and is now maintained by the Eclipse Foundation in tandem with the Eclipse IDE, it is an alternative to the Abstract Window Toolkit and Swing Java graphical user interface toolkits provided by Sun Microsystems as part of the Java Platform, Standard Edition. To display GUI elements, the SWT implementation accesses the native GUI libraries of the operating system using Java Native Interface in a manner, similar to those programs written using operating system-specific application programming interfaces. Programs that call SWT are portable, but the implementation of the toolkit, despite part of it being written in Java, is unique for each platform; the toolkit is free and open-source software distributed under the Eclipse Public License, approved by the Open Source Initiative. The first Java GUI toolkit was the Abstract Window Toolkit, introduced with Java Development Kit 1.0 as one component of Sun Microsystems' Java platform.

The original AWT was a simple Java wrapper library around native widgets such as menus and buttons. Swing was the next generation GUI toolkit introduced by Sun in Java Platform, Standard Edition 1.2. Swing was developed to provide a richer set of GUI software components than AWT. Swing GUI elements are all-Java with no native code: instead of wrapping native GUI components, Swing draws its own components by using Java 2D to call low-level operating system drawing routines; the roots of SWT go back to work that Object Technology International, did in the 1990s when creating multiplatform, native widget interfaces for Smalltalk for OTI Smalltalk, which became IBM Smalltalk in 1993. IBM Smalltalk's Common Widget layer provided fast, native access to multiple platform widget sets while still providing a common API without suffering the lowest common denominator problem typical of other portable graphical user interface toolkits. IBM was developing an integrated development environment written in Smalltalk.

They decided to open-source the project, which led to the development of Eclipse, intended to compete against other IDEs such as Microsoft Visual Studio. Eclipse is written in Java, IBM developers, deciding that they needed a toolkit that had "native look and feel" and "native performance", created SWT as a Swing replacement. SWT is a wrapper such as GTK + objects, Motif objects etc.. Because of this, SWT widgets are referred to as "heavyweight", evoking images of a light Java wrapper around a "heavy" native object. In cases where native platform GUI libraries do not support the functionality required for SWT, SWT implements its own GUI code in Java, similar to Swing. In essence, SWT is a compromise between the low level performance and look and feel of AWT and the high level ease of use of Swing. According to the Eclipse Foundation, "SWT and Swing are different tools that were built with different goals in mind; the purpose of SWT is to provide a common API for accessing native widgets across a spectrum of platforms.

The primary design goals are high performance, native look and feel, deep platform integration. Swing, on the other hand, is designed to allow for a customizable look and feel, common across all platforms."It has been argued that SWT features a clean design, in part inspired by Erich Gamma of Design Patterns fame. SWT is a simpler toolkit than Swing, with less extraneous functionality for the average developer; this has led some people to argue. James Gosling, the creator of the Java language, has argued that SWT is too simple, is a difficult toolkit to port to new platforms for the same reason that AWT once had porting problems: that it is too simple, too low level, too tied to the Win32 GUI API, leading to problems adapting the SWT API to other GUI toolkits, such as Motif and OS X Carbon. Although SWT does not implement the popular model–view–controller architecture used in Swing and many other high level GUI toolkits, the JFace library, developed as part of the same Eclipse project, does provide a cross-platform, higher-level MVC abstraction atop SWT.

Developers may choose to use JFace to provide more flexible and abstract data models for complex SWT controls such as trees and lists, or access those controls directly as needed. SWT widgets have the same look and feel as native widgets because they are the same native widgets; this is in contrast to the Swing toolkit. In some cases the difference is distinguishable. For example, the macOS tree widget features a subtle animation when a tree is expanded and default buttons have an animated pulsing glow to focus the user's attention on them; the default Swing version of these widgets do not animate. Since SWT is a wrapper around native GUI code, it does not require large numbers of updates when that native code is changed, providing that operating system vendors are careful not to break clients of their API when the operating systems are updated; the same cannot be said of Swing, which supports the ability to change the look and feel of the running application with "pluggable looks and feels".

These enable emulating the native platform user interface using themes, which must be updated to mirror operating system GUI changes, such as theme or other look and feel updates. SWT aims for "deep platform integration". According to Mauro Marinillia of, "whenever one needs a tight integration with the native platform, SWT ca

The Watersons

The Watersons were an English folk group from Hull, Yorkshire. They performed traditional songs with little or no accompaniment, their distinctive sound came from their woven harmonies. The band's original members were Norma and Elaine known as Lal Waterson, with their cousin John Harrison from Kingston High School, they moved on to playing more traditional material. They were known as "the Folksons", their first album was Frost and Fire 1965 followed by The Watersons and A Yorkshire Garland in 1966. The Watersons split up in 1968, when Norma went to work as a disc jockey on a radio station on Montserrat; the group reformed in 1972, with John Harrison replaced by Bernie Vickers. In that year they performed and arranged the music for the Alan Plater TV Play for Today, "The Land of Green Ginger", set and filmed in Hull, appeared in a scene filmed in the Bluebell Folk Club. Vickers was replaced the same year by Martin Carthy; this line-up recorded For Pence and Spicy Ale, Sound Your Instruments of Joy, Green Fields.

Line-ups featured Mike Waterson's daughter Rachel Waterson, who replaced Lal during a leave of absence caused by ill health in the mid-1980s continued to sing with the group on Lal's return. This five-piece line up performed during the late 1980s and recorded a session for the BBC Andy Kershaw show in August 1986. In 1987, the group collaborated with Swan Arcade to form Blue Murder, who have performed and recorded sporadically with various line-ups to the present day. Subsequent Watersons line-ups fluctuated, featuring Eliza Carthy, Anne Waterson and Maria Gilhooley at various times, but recording only occasionally. Lal Waterson died in 1998 and, by the early 1990s, Norma Waterson and their daughter Eliza Carthy had formed the group Waterson–Carthy; the Watersons ceased to sing live on a regular basis, but the family reconvened for special events and festival appearances, where they are billed as "The Waterson Family". These have included'A Mighty River of Song' at the Royal Albert Hall on 12 May 2007, the BBC Electric Proms concert,'Once in a Blue Moon: A Tribute to Lal Waterson', at Cecil Sharp House in London on 25 October 2007 and'A Tribute to Bert,' a concert celebrating the life and work of Albert Lancaster Lloyd, at Cecil Sharp House on 15 November 2008.

During the summer of 2009, "The Waterson Family" performed at a number of festivals and large concerts throughout England and Ireland. Mike Waterson died on 22 June 2011, aged 70, at Scarborough, North Yorkshire The accompanying book to the Topic Records 70 year anniversary boxed set Three Score and Ten lists two of their albums as classic albums; the first is Frost and Fire with Hal-an-Tow as the eleventh track on the second CD and the second is For Pence and Spicy Ale.
