The nebula project has a cool set of widgets for SWT which can be readily used in a RCP application.

I was playing around with nebula CalendarCombo and wanted to give it my own date format. As usual I started to read the source code and found that all you need to do is to define your own settings class, override getDateFormat and give it to the CalendarCombo constructor

eg

new CalendarCombo(parent, SWT.NONE, new Settings(), null).
 

Settings class example below.
public class Settings extends DefaultSettings 
{
public Locale getLocale()
{ return Locale.ENGLISH; }

public String getDateFormat()
{ return "dd/MM/yyyy"; }
}
