In Eclipse 3.4, it's now possible to full-screen an SWT Shell. In simple terms, this means that you can add full-screen support to your Eclipse-based applications fairly easily. For example, take this simple action you could add to your application:

// maybe code in an ActionBarAdvisor
fullScreenAction = new Action("Full Screen") {
{ setId("fullscreen");
setActionDefinitionId("mypluginid" + "fullscreen"); } //$NON-NLS-1$
public void run() {
window.getShell().setFullScreen(true); // grab an IWorkbenchWindow and fullscreen it

It's as simple as that! For reference, see this blog post.
