Hello All,
I've recently finished a pretty big project using Netbeans and now that I have a little time I'm trying to get up to speed with Eclipse which everybody raves about and Websphere 5.1 which is built on Eclipse. Eclipse and Websphere seem to lack some features I really like in Netbeans like no RAD GUI builder in Eclipse (is there a free plugin somewhere??) and in Websphere I don't see a way to auto-generate event handlers for GUI elements. In Netbeans I could create a blank applet, drag a button onto it, right click the button and auto-generate an action-performed event handler. This is a really nice feature for a relative newbie who doesn't know all the events all the GUI widgets can respond to. Do these features exist and I just haven't figured them out??
Thanx for info
Dave

Howdy Dave,
Nope, WebSphere Studio V5.x just does not have what we had in VisualAge for Java many moons ago. You gotta actually write code. Sorry 'bout that chief.

The Visual Editor Projects was announced yesterday in eclipse.org. It is more commonly known as the Java Visual Editor within IBM before it was contributed to eclipse.org. The JVE was first released in WSAD 5.0 as a base GUI AWT/Swing builder. Now in 5.1 and 5.1.1 it has events and other good stuff. To start, select File > New > Visual Class. Then you can select Swing, AWT, etc. It currently doesn't support SWT. The Eclipse VEP has it in plan.

Hi Dan,
All I can say is wow and thanks. I hadn't thought to try that in 5.1, since I've been busy doing other stuff like Web Services. I have taught the 5.0 VE, and I guess it's time to redo the labs that I just wrote 6 months ago!

I feel your pain Howard. We're going to suffer through updating all the material for Eclipse 3.0. Some of my co-authors are still teaching the Java Developer's Guide to Eclipse course and thus part of their job is staying on top of the little details of the upcoming releases. metacomment: Wouldn't it figure, Jim, Pat, and Scott are getting sweet trips overseas (Italy, Sweden, Turkey, Germany...) after I left the Jumpstart organization. I taught in far less exotic locales like Austin, Texas. :roll:
