We are looking for a GUI builder to use with our Swing project(s) that utilise components from JIDE and would like to know if anyone has managed to get WindowBuilder to work effectively with these components.

I have done some preliminary testing and have managed to add some JIDE controls to the palette but am getting several exceptions when I try to use them such as ClassCastExceptions which seem to relate to the look and feel and also internal NullPointerExceptions. This is not giving me much hope of getting these components to work but if someone else has succesfully integrated WindowBuilder and JIDE I am hoping they can offer some suggestions and/or tips.

Thanks,

-JT

I have used WindowBuilder with JIDE in the past and never had any problems. No idea why you might be having a problem (or whether it is a WB or JIDE issue). You should post relevant log entries.

Here is one such exception. This occurs when I add a JideTabbedPane into a JPanel and save the file:

java.lang.ClassCastException: javax.swing.JPanel cannot be cast to javax.swing.JTabbedPane

Any idea why this might be happening?

Do you have any other exception examples?

Yes, I have other exceptions but they are coming directly from JIDE itself and JIDE support are assisting me with those. The exception I posted above is the only one I get so far that is coming directly from WB.
