I am just learning this IDE having worked with VisualAge For Java long ago and Textpad. I am certain the code is fine but for some reason my GUI isn't showing up anywhere. Is this disabled somewhere and can be enabled? Thanks in advance

Thanks for your response Omar, I have version 2.1.0 and for plugins I have Java Developemnt Tools Core, Java Developemnt Tools Example Projects, Java Developemnt Tools JUnit support, Java Developemnt Tools Launching Support, Java Developemnt Tools UI. So I think I have everything needed, other java programs without GUIs work and my System.out.println does go into the Console, actually even JOptionPane's display just nothing with a real GUI.

What happens if you start your program from outside eclipse? What happens if you *compile and* start your program outside of eclipse?

That's most odd... I completed another part of the project and the GUI suddenly started displaying. I did nothing to the preferences. Maybe this IDE is a little quirky?
