Hello Mark,

indeed, Interfaces are not checked for component recognition, only

Why don't you simply use java.awt.Component as the most generic base
class (or even java.lang.Object to work with the coming SWT version)?

If you really need the Interface information you can use a
FeatureResolver that checks for it.

Anyway, if you have that much control over the source, generic
components should be used in combination with setName and for that the
java.awt.Component solution is perfectly sufficient.

Best regards,
