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)
