There's no point going into a Java vs C++ argument here -- the question is one of toolkit design. Qt is an exceptionally well-designed toolkit (and has Java bindings, remember), but not everyone is fortunate enough to be in a position to use it, and in some situations it may not be appropriate.

Personally, I disliked the design of both the SWT and Swing toolkits when we studied them at university, but if I were required to write something using SWT, this article would be useful, so good job!

Now how about a series of articles comparing widget toolkits -- Qt, GTK, wxWidgets, FLTK, etc...?
