I was wondering if there was a freeware/open source IDE that was like Visual J#. Having to type long blocks of code to make the GUI is a bit annoying and I'm looking for a more visual solution; free of course. If there aren't any free one's, what is the cheapest one I can get without losing capability.

Well, Visual J# Express Edition is free, Eclipse is also free and has a visual editor and Sun's Netbeans is free as well.

JCreator

We used a free version of that at school, and it was an alright IDE. I don't mind it. Which is saying a lot considering how much I dislike Java. [smile]

I can't install Visual J++ because I run ME, and you have to have 2000 or greater. NetBeans is good, but it has a lot of glitches in it that I find irritating. Does Eclipse (mentioned eariler) have a form builder/editor similer to the other two programs (netbeans & Visual J#). If so, how do I get to it? Thanks

There are a few GUI designer plugins for Eclipse. I can't recommend one as I haven't tried any of them. Eclipse Visual Editor is a foundation for GUI builder plugins, but provides a reference implementation you might find useful. If that doesn't do it for you snoop around Eclipse Plugin Central and see what you find.

You can apparently install the Visual Editor by going to Help, Software Updates, and Find and Install in Eclipse. It depends on EMF and GEF, so check those too when selecting things to install. Sweet, I've been looking for something like this for Java.
