TIC allows to efficiently develop GUI components which can be used both in Swing and SWT projects. The graphical output, as well as mouse and and keyboard reactions of a component need to be implemented only once and TIC allows to use the component in both toolkits. Therefore it provides adapter classes converting both paint methods and mouse and key events between the two toolkits.

Developers who need to offer components that work with Swing and SWT in the same way (e.g. developers of GUI component libraries) can make use of TIC to ease up the implementation process. An example for a GUI library that offers all its components in a Swing and SWT version is LibrAlign for which TIC was initially created.

TIC is distributed under LGPL. More information can be found at
