Hi,

I am new to development of UI in java. I have used C#, but now we must use java because it's our group decision.

There is only 4 of us and we like eclipse. We don't know what UI builder to use. No one download VE yet, but we are thinking about it. But we think project may be dead. Wiki says Galileo may not be supported??

We are a little confused. Is VE alive and can someone who used recently share experience about it?

Also, what other tools are available. One of our guys came up with jigloo and we don't mind paying for it. Is there anything else that is good for eclipse?

I'm using VE with Eclipse 3.4 on a Mac and it's working fine, and I
think (but will not bet my money or my life that) it's still somewhat alive.

I also use WindowBuilder from Instantiations
(http://www.instantiations.com/windowbuilder/index.html) which is an
excellent commercial product, not terribly expensive, and also works
very well. Instantiations has many years of experience with Eclipse (and
its predecessor VisualAge) and visual editing, and if you're looking for
a commercial product I recommend their stuff from many years of first
hand experience as a developer.
