Hi,
I downloaded Eclipse and started using it a few days ago; built a simple GUI with some controls, listeners, etc. using SWT. I would just like to know other developer's experiences with the API and architecture of SWT. As far as the API goes, it seems very similar to Swing? What are the nuances? Also I was very disappointed that there is no GUI builder. Or is there a plug-in?


thanks,

Barry

I hope the plug-ins in this link might help you in developing GUI using Eclipse... I do belive that SWT is the some kinda revolution of Swing... Even though I've less amount of experience on it, I've heard from many sources like online articles and benchmarks that SWT stay a little bit ahead of Swing, since its evolution...

I've mentioned that link in above thread already... Kinda duplicated links... People sometimes used to collide their ideas... Anyway, the above link is good as for GUI plugin resource....

Thanks guys! I just downloaded the Jigloo plug-in from CloudGarden. I installed it and built a very simple Swing GUI in about 10 minutes. Very impressive!
