digitalmars.D.dwt - JFace-DFace Hi Shawn

I just have a look at the Eclipse JFace docs and it seems! that porting is
straightforward. It also seems that there exists no dependecies to the
Eclipse platform. So I can imagine to start porting Jface to DFace (I guess
we will choose this name) But before I waste time I would like to know :
1) Anybody out there who allready give it a try ?
2) What about general pitfalls ? (I mean common mistakes one will make when
porting Java to D. I think the DWT folks should have some experience <g>)
3) What Tools are in  use ?

Regarding 2) : Thanks to Walter a lot of "from C to D docs" are available .
Any hints regarding  "from Java to D  docs" ?

I have viewed the JFace source code before. Besides SWT, it partially 
depends on org.eclipse.core.commands package. I asked Kris for a j2d 
converter to do a pre-translation. It will save a lot of work but many 
manually porting is still required. And some classes in JRE packages needs 
to be implemented in D. I didn't go any further so far.

Currently I still focus on an update of DWT. This version will be consistent 
with SWT 3.2 M5. It may take a long time because there are lots of changes 
between SWT 3.02 and 3.2 and because lack of spare time.

Anybody interested in porting JFace to D is welcome. The attempts will be 
very important and helpful. One can ask Kris for a j2d converter if he(she) 
is interested.

Okay, I still have to check some preliminaries.
Where should I  place further questions?   Here or within  the DForge DWT
forum ?

I think it's better in DSource forum. It's easier to trace a message than in the newsgroup.
