For those of you exploring the xwt library are you finding it simpler to hand craft your UI or do your prefer/been able to use WindowBuilder effectively with it?

I've been struggling a bit with configuration and am starting to wonder if it might not just be simpler to hand code at this point.

I'm also wondering if xwt is likely to get significant traction within the eclipse/java community.

The lack of traffic on this forum makes me wonder a bit about the status.


thanks,
robert

I think it is almost the same as with handcrafting SWT in Java or using WindowBuilder to generate the UI code.
Probably, it is best to start with WindowBuilder, then, switch to manually editing using the WTP XML Editor once you are more familiar with XWT.

We are currently preparing XWT for the Luna release train.

You have just contributed to XWT and triggered more traffic, so, it is not that inactive Smile
