JFace is not yet completed and it does not contain the docking stuff you 
are looking for. But perhaps, if JFace is working, its not much left to 
get the missing stuff ported from the eclipse source.

JFace adds
  - Model-View-Control for String,List,Table,Tree with sort and filter
  - resource management for images,fonts,colors
  - Preference Dialogs
  - Wizards
  - long running operation support
  - Actions, commands and key binding schemes.
  - Field assist

However, if you only need to have split windows and tabs, you can use 
"SashForm" and "CTabFolder". E.g. Poseidon is a pure DWT application.
