Eclipse Mac: Cocoa SWT

Recently I started working on Mac eclipse, and i was trying to understand what is the underlying SWT library.

They are using Cocoa SWT.

Cocoa is Apple's native object-oriented application programming interface (API) for the OS X operating system.

More @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cocoa_(API)

SWT will have 2 plugins:

org.eclipse.swt  => swt core plugin
org.eclipse.swt.cocoa.macosx => Native interface calls to Mac OS X

Seems to be cocoa is supported from eclipse 3.5 version
