Eclipse version Juno 4.2|
Installed the appropriate WindowBuilder from Eclipse link.
Indications that I have installed WindowBuilder:
1) Window->Preferences->WindowBuilder...Code parsing, swing, SWT, UI Toolkits.
2) Window->Preferences->Web Toolkit->Designer...Absolute Layout, Code style, Event Handling.
3) File->New->WindowBuilder->GWT User Interface. (also contains project pallet, swing designer, SWT designer).
So I do File->New->WindowBuilder->GWT User Interface. I get the following dialog:
"Install GWT Toolkit"
"Create a new GWT interface. Requires loading additional WindowBuilder toolkits"
Brings up an additional dialog with 8 items: Google Plugin for Eclipse 3.7 (!), GWT designer (3 items), WindowBuilder (4 items)
Next or Finish buttons on the dialog have no effect. I can only cancel the dialog. If I unselect the Google Plugin for Eclipse 3.7 I can click install but the install fails.
So, something isn't working. I see there is currently a lot of activity moving WindowBuilder to Eclipse. The forums I have searched give mixed reviews on whether WindowBuilder works with Juno 4.2, or even works at all.
I have attached a screen print of the dialogs I am seeing.
Many thanks for your help!

You indicated that WIndowBuilder itself does not work with 4.2. WB is composed of SWT Designer and Swing Designer. Both of those work fine under 4.2. |
I would always recommend using the latest WB build from the WB update site (the integration links).
I don't believe that the Google team has released a compatible version of GWT Designer that will work with the latest WB code yet. The version you tried to install definitely won't work. If you want to follow up with Google on the status of GWT Designer, I would recommend posting a question to Google's GPE forum. I know they are working on it, so hopefully they will post a new build soon.
