Visual Swing

I found a nice Swing Designer for Eclipse called Visual Swing:

Eclipse Zone: Visual Swing for Eclipse

This is a project hosted on Google Code.  So far, it has worked pretty nice.  It is by no means a commercial solution, but it definitely gets the job done.

I had a little trouble installing it from the Update Site.  The first time, I just downloaded the files and manually placed them in my Eclipse Home directory.  But, today I figured out how to get the update site to work.

Here is the update site I had to use:

Then, in the install window, I had to uncheck “Group items by category”.  Otherwise, it would say “There are no categorized items”.  Finally, the install window seems to have a refresh problem.  It was loading the items in the list, but it was not painting them.  I had to give it some time to load, then I had to resize the install window to make it repaint the list.

There is an outstanding bug on the Update Site: Issue #119.
