Hi:
I am an immigrant from vc++ to J2SE.In microsoft visual c++ when I wanted to create a for example dialog based application with several controls,it could be done simply in the IDE.I mean there were some icons or i'd better say self controls in IDE itself that I clicked them and made my desired controls.Just like copy and paste.So in few minutes you could create the layout of your application but in eclipse it seems that there is not such a thing.You should import some thing and mention for example the size,place and ... of your control.
Is there any thing like ms visual c++ in Java to create the layout and controls fast by clicking (and so you must only think to OOP design and algorythm not to the size of controls)?

Thanks
Excuse my long message

You can try to use NetBeans IDE. It has a very nice GUI builder similar to the one in Visual Studio.

Eclipse has a Visual Editor. You might need to install it, I think it's not by default included in the standard Eclipse distribution. In Eclipse, go to Help / Software Updates / Find and Install... and look for "Visual Editor".

Unfortunately the Eclipse Visual Editor project seems to be a project that has been standing still for a while, there haven't been updates to it in a long time...

Have a look here for more info: Eclipse Visual Editor Project
