The jaret datechooser is a classic drop down date chooser widget for use with the SWT toolkit.
NOTE: With the 3.3 release of SWT a datechooser is included in SWT. This might be your favorite choice unless you need some special features like marking of holidays or other days. There are also some datechooser components coming up in the eclipse nebula project (and of course there are some more available).
In the package there is also a simple time chooser component that can be wired with the date chooser.
The package is licensed under the Common Public License 1.0 (CPL 1.0) (see LICENSE) allowing the usage in other free and commercial projects as long as the license is obeyed. If you are interested in a commercial license contact email@example.com.
There are several different packages available for download (please note that you need the jaretutils as well):

We think the datechhoser is near to production quality - as long as the supported features are serve the purposes of the application.

The datechooser should run on every platform supporting Java 1.5 and SWT. The main testing of the SWT component was done on Win32. Some tests have been performed on Linux with the GTK+ version of SWT and Mac OS X 10.4.8/Intel. Due to the nature of the SWT toolkit it can not be guaranteed that the component will work on all platforms. Additional tests are planned; feedback is welcome.
