Can anyone give me the link to PLUGINS to enable Visual Editor in ECLIPSE???

Also what should I download to convert my project to .exe from ECLIPSE??

My Eclipse version is 3.1.1

With regards,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

1) What do you mean by "visual editor"? A way to edit Swing? JSPs? something else?

2) As far as I know, converting a program to an exe is separate from the IDE. Take a look at this thread or search the forums for exe to get some more examples.

I want the visual Editor for swing.

I tried NetBeans but that is really slow and boring.
I like Eclipse very much .

Can I use it with the Swing editor?

I think they intend it to work with Swing but I have not used it in swing yet.

The best way I have found is to use eclipse Updater to download and install the package from within eclipse. I had trouble trying to download and install it manually.

Should be a project called VE. Find and read instructions. Eclipse Updater is preferred method.
I agree. Here's the link:
