I have been programming in Visual C# for 3 years, I have just recently gotten in to Java, I have downloaded the latest version of Eclipse ide for Java EE Developers. The coding is great, not having an issue there but..... visual editor?!? agh?
I have spent days trying to sort this out and I cant not get a single gui running where I can drag controls to a form just like visual studio. I mean... honestly how come this isnt a default feature? Its horrendous, I just dont understand how they expect people to just sit there and construct forms by hand through code alone, its such a time sink, visual editors save alot of time!
I have heard of visual editor, swing, javafx, jigloo, and whatever else but not a single one can I get working. I mean I really want to program in Java but this is a killer.
I worry about using a non-official gui editor because how do I know support for it is going to stop, or if its going to be updated to fix bugs etc, I am just surprised there isnt a big sign somewhere on the main website, Visual Editor right here! lol Its just mind boggling
