Nyx supports swing. There are a couple of issues however with Swing that needed fixing for it to work the same way as the SWT part will work. This document explains what you can do to customize the things that nyx uses internally. This is btw done via properties that can be passed to the jvm (NOTE: it needs to be improved, since nyx should be able to run perfectly without any jvm commandline parameters and still allowing to add those parameters).


This section contains links to other pages, with topics of the inner workings of swing nyx integration. Also extension points specific to swing will be addressed in some cases.

A must read if you want to create swing widgets!
