I need some help on getting started with dwt2 on windows.

I have the DMD/Tango bundle from Tango and have installed the Ruby one
click installer to use rake.

1. Do I need to install the "dwt-win-importlibs.zip" for DWT2?

2. What about the "-L+tango-user-dmd.lib" in sc.ini under DFLAGS?

3. Can I use DSSS to build apps or is rake the only one supported?

4. Do I need a rake file to make a program?

5. I have successfully built "rake base swt", but "rake all" fails in
the "org.eclipse.text" module.

org\eclipse\jface\text\templates\GlobalTemplateVariables.d(172):
module java.util.Date is used as a type

org\eclipse\jface\text\templates\GlobalTemplateVariables.d(172):
Error: new can only create structs, dynamic arrays or class objects, not
void's

org\eclipse\jface\text\templates\GlobalTemplateVariables.d(172):
function com.ibm.icu.text.DateFormat.DateFormat.format (Date) does not
match parameter types (void*)

org\eclipse\jface\text\templates\GlobalTemplateVariables.d(172): Error:
cannot implicitly convert expression (new void) of type void* to
java.lang.Long.Long

6. The "rake swtsnippets" gives the following warning on all the snippets:

org.eclipse.swt.win32.win32.x86
Warning 2: File Not Found org.eclipse.swt.win32.win32.x86

7. Building snippet [Snippet130a] gives following error:

org\eclipse\swt\snippets\Snippet130a.d(64):
Error: java.lang.Thread.Thread at C:\dwt2\imp\java\lang\Thread.di(14)
conflicts with tango.core.Thread.Thread at
c:\dmdny\bin\..\import\tango\core\Thread.di(117)

org\eclipse\swt\snippets\Snippet130a.d(64):
constructor java.lang.Thread.Thread.this () does not match parameter
types (int delegate())

org\eclipse\swt\snippets\Snippet130a.d(64):
Error: cannot implicitly convert expression (__dgliteral1) of type int
delegate() to char[]

Thanks for any help!

No they are part of the repository. See:
http://hg.dsource.org/projects/dwt2/file/88652073d1c2/org.eclipse.swt.win32.win32.x86/lib/
When build swt they are copied to the dwt2/lib directory

2. What about the "-L+tango-user-dmd.lib" in sc.ini under DFLAGS?

Yes, you need it. Or depending how you build your application.

3. Can I use DSSS to build apps or is rake the only one supported?

Yes I think. I am not tried yet. Just give the "imp" folder with the
"-I" option and all the libs for linking.

4. Do I need a rake file to make a program?

I use it to build the the dwt2 tree. You are free for your application.

5. I have successfully built "rake base swt", but "rake all" fails in
the "org.eclipse.text" module.

Hm, i am working on bigger rework at the moment. I will come back to
those error later. But if you want to use swt, only "base" and "swt" is
needed. For JFace you need "base swt equinox core jface".

Nevertheless, thanks for reporting.

6. The "rake swtsnippets" gives the following warning on all the snippets:

org.eclipse.swt.win32.win32.x86
Warning 2: File Not Found org.eclipse.swt.win32.win32.x86

A reported bug in the linker. See
http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2857

7. Building snippet [Snippet130a] gives following error:

I will look into those.

I posted in the poseidon forum, how to set up a own app. See
http://www.dsource.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4602
Again i use a rake build process. Maybe not the most elegant thing. I am
sure the rakefile can be made better, this is just a shrinked copy of
the dwt2 rakefile.

Thanks for you interest in dwt.
