Is 3D interface is future? What are the possible realworld applications with 3D interfaces?
Is smalltalk beter than JAVA? Can Croquet replace Eclipse RCP for 3D applications?
Even not having these answers clearly…I can say that ..
Present GUI provided by Eclipse is not enough for future applications.
JAVA have to make itself ready to compete with Microsoft’s Avalon new SVG like GUI interface.
