How easy is it to add a basically swing coded UI into the Eclipse plugin framework ? I do not wish to be bound to SWT & JFace and lose the Swing power. Any thoughts ?
Why not just use Netbeans and Netbeans plugins? Full power of Swing... no lockin. There's even a Netbeans plugin to help you convert your Eclipse projects to Netbeans. ;-)
I never use the netbeans.Maybe I should download a copy for a test.
Now I decide to swith to netbeans,because nesbeans supports struts and application server,it is really suitable.
The latest versions of NetBeans attempts to threat the domination of Eclipse in the java ide market.
For Java EE development, NetBeans is the best thing out there right now. Eclipse and even IntelliJ don't have the features equilavent to that of NetBeans in this area.
I was a IntelliJ fan for quite a while but though IDEA is the best for Core Java, it is very bad for Java EE development.
Also NetBeans has some excellent features like UML modelling, class design, Integrated Ant, Excellent GUI Builder and Profiler and so on.
But still NetBeans lacks on the core editor. It still lacks some basic features such as block commenting, navigating between methods in a same class etc..
Eclipse is very good in these areas but in other areas it lags behing NetBeans. Also with every plugin u download, Eclipse is becoming slow and less manageable.
But overall...NetBeans is very good.
I never liked NetBeans before but now NetBeans is like never before...:-)
njoy with NetBeans........
Just to clarify, Netbeans has had block commenting for a long time. You should see the icons for it at the top of the editor pane. Also, navigating between methods within the same class is usually accomplished by selecting methods on the Navigator pane. Were you meaning a different feature?
I agree... Netbeans is the tool to beat.
