Glimmer Eclipse Project Creation Review

You've heard about Glimmer:

shell {
  text "JRuby on SWT"
  composite {
    label {
      text "Hello World!"

You've seen Glimmer in action at EclipseCon 2008:

And finally, Glimmer is proposed as an Eclipse Technology Project with the Creation Review scheduled on Wed, 16 Apr 2008 at 1600 UTC:

If you appreciate the ideas behind Glimmer, and would like to see it grow, or would like to become a part of the project by contributing your own ideas or code, feel free to express your interest by joining the Creation Review call-in meeting on April 16th at 11AM CT (GMT -06:00).

I will be presenting some slides to review the purpose of Glimmer, where it is now, and where it is going in the future.

I'd be very much interested in this tool!

On another note, have you looked at a similar tool for Swing apps?

Hi Andy
You've got a really interesting project with Glimmer. I'm Zone Leader at JavaLobby and EclipseZone. Getting an "Intro To Glimmer" article would be brilliant, and could eventually become a series. Would you be interested in posting some articles for us?
