I heard there is a plugin for eclispe that you can use to produce the gui part of application, but i dont know the name. has anyone used it? is it easy to work on then writing the gui yourself?


you mean the GEF?

I've tried it, prefer to write code by hand.
Easier, faster, and better code as a result.

For prototyping Swing I use my trusty JBuilder 2005 Developer for the basic layout, then complete that by hand.


i didnt know about this one but i foung another one called jigloo...:cheesy:

Switch to netbeasn the matisse GUI builder is Superb.

Like jwenting, I found that once you have created a Swing GUI or two it's easier to get exactly what you want by coding it yourself.

Thread closed before another time-traveller like misgana will bump into it with useless reply
