Hi all,

I has to develop a utility GUI using java, as it is very tedious doing programmitically. Anyone knows of a good free tool or plug-in for eclips for building java-based GUI, which can be editable programmatically.
i know of Netbeans Desktop application but it generates horrible code.

plz help.

thanx in advance.

if you think this is so, you should code yourself, because these tools need to accomodate many variations and so the code become "horrible".

You could try the eclipse gui builder:
http://www.eclipse.org/vep/
installation instructions: http://wiki.eclipse.org/VE/Installing

It's still in its beta stages, but if you like eclipse you'll probably like the visual editor.

As a side note, netbeans is probably the best free gui building tool out there. If you're not happy with it you probably won't be happy with any others, they all follow the same general procedure.
