The drawbacks of SWT to normal users are pretty significant.  They need to
download a specific package built for their platform, there needs to be an
SWT port for that platform, etc.  See
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=swt+wora for a lots of commentary on
both sides of the SWT vs WORA debate.

Also, have you seen http://community.java.net/javadesktop/?  All sorts of
good things there, both documentation and code, e.g.,

   https://looks.dev.java.net/
   https://jgoodies.dev.java.net/

Just food for discussion.
