Hello,
I am learning hot to code a Java GUI using the Eclipse WindowBuilder and wonder if this technology can be used to implement a plugin to be used as Eclipse editor.
I hope my question makes sense.
Thanks, Marco

Marco,

Yes, and no. It can be used to create SWT GUIs that you can use in your
editor. But I don't think it will generate an editor.

With EMF you could define a simple model to generate an editor, and then
you could modify it to use some Window Builder generated GUI controls.
Of course with EMF Forms of EMF EEF you could also design your forms
more declaratively.

Or you could just find an example editor somewhere.
