JAVA GUI with Xcode?
Hi I am writing a java program with a GUI.
I have wrote a program in objective C using Xcode and the view pane/ click and drag for buttons was VERY helpful.
I normally use eclipse for Java, does eclipse have a similar WISIWYG style feature or can I use Xcode for JAva?
Re: JAVA GUI with Xcode?
Presuming you mean to use Swing, I'd recommend googling "java Swing eclipse GUI builder". Netbeans has a GUI builder. I believe one of the newer versions of Eclipse has one or at least has a plug-in. All this being said, GUI builders may seem to make things easier in the beginning, but not knowing the basics of building a GUI from code alone one is left with a more difficult time with customization, code maintanence, or even reading someone else's code (this is one complaint of mine with respect to apple/x-code, how it tries to simplify UI building but in my opinion actually makes it more difficult).
