Glimmer Connect 4

Glimmer DSL for SWT 4.20.13.14 shipped with a Connect 4 elaborate sample. It is implemented as a 2-player game that is very similar to Tic Tac Toe in implementation except that it relies on a hybrid canvas widget/shape approach to lay out the slots.

Connect 4

I'll let the GUI code speak for itself.
