This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I am using Eclipse Visual Editor . after I new a visual class and loading small window, the design pane doesn't have anything, such as The JFrame window and its child JPanel. I can't change the JFrame setting. But the coding still is there.
I get the same problem with eclipse 3.0.1 EMF 2.0.1 GEF 3.0.1 and VE 1.0.
I create a simple layout but as soon as I edit the code and then run it the frame pops up but the Java Beans panel that shows the items gets cleared and the gui editor panel gets cleared as well. The code remains the same.
Restarting the editor doesn't help. It doesn't bring back the layout. Does anyone know does it use tags to help it rebuild the code like some other gui layout tools or does it do it all by source...
(brings me back to the good old days of fighting visual crape 3 to develop swing apps)

Remove the EMF examples plug-in from your Eclipse installation and it should work fine.
I found the answer from someone on the eclipse VE newsgroup...
