As some of you might know, DWT is a D port of Java's SWT. It is 
as thus nearly identical and you can use Java's documentation 
with very little effort - copy/paste of Java examples almost just 
work as D too.

But, the eclipse docs are meh and besides, it is nice to have the 
D docs anyway.

Thankfully, there's plenty of documentation comments in the dwt 
source. Alas, they are javadoc comments. Well, now adrdox knows 
how to read javadoc (if specifically told to).

I don't have a great entry point to the docs, so it will just go 
to the Display class... but take a look:

http://dwt.dpldocs.info/index.html

As you click around, you can navigate, see the inheritance trees, 
and might even notice some of the java.lang namespace in there!

http://dwt.dpldocs.info/java.lang.String.html

Well, I made a mistake generating these and there's a broken 
image and link in the header... but the text body looks pretty 
good!


Any DWT users who can give me feedback on the quality?

Compare and contrast with the official Java dox:

both are generated from basically the same doc comments, but I 
like mine better :)

Cool!  I used to love using DWT back in the day.

Yeh the Eclipse ones look like they were written by someone trying very
hard to make you think you were using a native app on some platform with a
horrible UI from the 90s.

Yeah, I realized after generating the files that I used the wrong header source. The search is a broken link too... All fixed now via some hacky redirects :)

1) Standalone Application

It is also known as a desktop application or window-based 
application. An application that we need to install on every 
machine such as media player, antivirus etc. AWT and Swing are 
used in java for creating standalone applications.

2) Web Application

An application that runs on the server side and creates a dynamic 
page, is called web application. Currently, servlet, JSP, Struts, 
JSF etc. technologies are used for creating web applications in 
Java.

3) Enterprise Application

An application that is distributed in nature, such as banking 
applications etc. It has the advantage of the high-level 
security, load balancing, and clustering. In Java, EJB is used 
for creating enterprise applications.

4) Mobile Application

An application that is created for mobile devices. Currently, 
Android and Java ME are used for creating mobile applications.

This is pretty cool :) A few comments and comparing with the Javadocs there are a few things missing: * It doesn't seem to be possible to navigate between the top level packages, i.e. "java" and "org" * No inheritance chain * No implemented interfaces * Only one level of inherited members * I think it's a bit too much to show the documentation of inherited members, I would just have links to them -- /Jacob Carlborg

You need to go all to the way to the top level by clicking the topmost link on the left nav: http://dwt.dpldocs.info/org.html http://dwt.dpldocs.info/java.html Though, I see when you click on "org" it takes you right into "org.eclipse"... that's a side effect of the single-item module (when you click on foo.bar and it only has one member, it goes straight to that member to handle these java-like one class per module layouts... but I guess I buggily applied it to modules too.)
 * No inheritance chain
 * No implemented interfaces
They are in the prototype block http://dwt.dpldocs.info/org.eclipse.swt.graphics.Image.Image.html final class Image : Resource , Drawable { and notice those are links so you can click up to walk the chain. tho on that page i see a javadoc link that didn't get translated... i can fix that later. Though I didn't follow the chain all the way to the top because:
 * Only one level of inherited members
 * I think it's a bit too much to show the documentation of 
 inherited members, I would just have links to them
These two are related. It did seem a bit silly to me to list EVERYTHING, but I also figured most cases of inheritance do have at least one layer of important methods. So I compromised by showing the one, then letting you click on the links in the main thing to follow the chain up. I'm open to changing that though. Like maybe it could just show non-overridden members. It could walk the chain. It could skip the listing and just show links all the way up to Object, perhaps under a "Inheritance Chain" header so it is easier to see than the prototype. What do you think would be best?

Aha, I see.

That's quite easy to miss.

In general I like the what the Javadoc renders [1]: * Separate inheritances chain * Separate interface implementations * Inherited members are listed as only links and the whole inheritances chain is included [1] http://help.eclipse.org/luna/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.platform.doc.isv%2Freference%2Fapi%2Forg%2Feclipse%2Fswt%2Fwidgets%2Fpackage-summary.html -- /Jacob Carlborg

I would recommend the "swt" package [1] as an entry point. Or we could add some documentation to the "all" or "std" modules [2] [3] and use one of those.
