Hoping to become a Java Titan someday!

« Posted 2004-09-08 18:17:53 »

I'm looking for recommendations on a GUI tool for doing up quick user interfaces.  IE - I want to make a quick test tool for my use, which has 3 buttons, 1 toggle, and a combobox.  Another example might be that I want a simple menu, with a jpanel in the center area.

I don't care about layout managers.  I assume it will use absolute positioning, though if its more advanced - great.

Anyone have any suggestions?

For that, any GUI tool is overkill.

But I found JBuilder very nice bc. it is 2way, NetBeans also works very well.

Eclipse ... the common problem: one of 1.000.000 GUI builder plugins might be the right one.....

Any 3 of the 1.000.000 eclipse plugins you've liked especially?

I tried the Eclipse Visual Editor a while ago and it seemed very nice.

Eclipse with the Visual Editor is the best for me. It produces much better code than netbeans. The available version is very stable and has support for SWT also.

I found netbean's editor to be very well done. generated code is clean and you can choose how events are dispatched, which might be important depending on your own code habits.
The control over the layout is impressive when using GridBagLayout.

The one I am in love with now is -


Its a plugin for eclipse.  Great work IMHO.  Its better than Visual Editor, as you don't need all those other plugins to make it work.

You only need the jigloo plugin.

You can find more here -
