A powerfull Visual Editor was launched for Eclipse. It supports both SWT and Swing (afaik).

Take a look at SWT Designer, Swing Designer, and the Eclipse Visual Editor.

I work in a small Java shop, and our developers are about equally torn between Eclipse and NetBeans. I have always preferred using a syntax-highlighting text editor, but I'll probably have to start working with one of the two tools we use.

Can the author shed some light on why I would choose Eclipse over NetBeans?

Thanks!

Jeff it would be better to start another thread. We already have an IDEA vs Eclipse and would be nice to have a separate/distinct Netbeans vs Eclipse discussion.

Free versions of both tools are available. The free versions do not include all of the features available in the NC ($99) or Pro ($199) versions. Click here for a comparison.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
