    Default GUI Builder.

    Hi there,

    New to java.

    I just want to know how many people are using the NetBean Matisse to do the GUI job? Why Eclipse not adding this tool in their editor?

    I chose Eclipse to start my learning, should I switch to the NetBean because of the Matisse?

    Thx dude.

    I don't use GUI builders, because they produce horrible code. Stick to eclipse and write the code yourself.

    In Eclipse you can install Window Builder to design GUI just like in NetBeans.

    This is argue-able. If you take the time to configure the NetBeans GUI builder, and then still use layouts within the GUI builder, as you should! Then actually they are capable of producing pretty decent code. If you do everything in free form layout then yea it probably will be pretty poor.

    OK. Tried the NetBean today. Honestly, NetBean is more sophicated, or it looks more sophicated as a new user to say.
