Development of an IDE with GUI Designer
We want to develop an IDE in java, which will provide a GUI Designer also. GUI designer will allow to Design some screens by providing some minimum controls( developed in Java Beans). The output files fed to compiler would be XML files.
Could anyone tell me how to start of a development of your own IDE like this. Any books or material available, which tells how to develop such IDEs or GUI Designers.
Actually i have experience in VC++ but not java. So i am sort of beginer in JAVA.
I would be greatfull if someone can extend some help.
