Hi guys. So for a university assignment I have been asked to create a game of my choice but it has to be created within Eclipse using WindowBuilder.

The problem I am facing is how on earth do you create a maze within WindowBuilder?

I've thought about it for myself a few times with theories such as creating the maze within Fireworks or something then import it as an image into Eclipse and use the various windowbuilder tools within eclipse to implement collision features within the game.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

This is not a good question for this forum as WindowBuilder will only play a very small role in what you are doing. Use it to create your main window/shell and then fill that with a canvas widget. Draw your game there and react to user input. Whether you draw the maze yourself or import a graphic won't make any difference to WindowBuilder. Also note that WIndowBuilder will not help you with the game aspects of the program (like collision detection) in any way.
