My colleagues in development have produced an add-on to Rational Application Developer to assist in creating SWT plugins that bind to data sources. Pretty cool if you are doing that sort of work (like making Workplace Client plugins, for instance).
As they say on alphaWorks:
This technology is analogous to the Swing Data Binding shipped in Rational Application Developer (RAD), Version 6, which has been extended to include data binding for Standard Widget Toolkit (SWT) components so users can effortlessly access data from various data sources (enterprise JavaTM beans (EJB), Web services, Java beans, or JDBC SDO).
This set of tools includes an intuitive user interface and, used along with the Java Visual Editor in RAD 184.108.40.206, allows easy data-binding through code generation in the most common situations in the development of a SWT-based Java application. It provides users with the ability to connect the visual SWT elements of the Java application so that they can access data from various data sources.
