There's an old bug asking for SceneBuilder as an Eclipse editor (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=408408). I'm happy to tell that a master project I'm supervising has produced a prototype of this (and he's not done, yet) available at https://gitlab.stud.iie.ntnu.no/tobiaas/scene-builder-plugin and installable from http://files.idi.ntnu.no/publish/sb4e-SNAPSHOT/repository/
It builds on Gluon's SceneBuilder and runs on Eclipse Oxygen, e(fx)clipse 3.1.0 (I believe) and Java 8 (for now).

Features
- open and edit FXML files
- the Inspector is a separate, linked view
- loads files using containing project's class path, so you can use custom controls and controllers

See image below!

He's still working on it and will be happy for feedback and/or issues at his gitlab site.

I installed the 0.9.1 release of the plug-in in Oxygen, but when I try to open an FXML file with it, the editor is unable to instantiate "Failed to create the part's controls" and this exception is shown:

I could not find a way to obtain an account on this Gitlab instance. Is there any issue tracker where I could report such problems?

Hi, I'm the developer of this plug-in. Thank you for reporting your issue! Apologies for the delayed response.

Is the document you're trying to open located in the default package (i. e., directly under src)? That could be the cause of the issue. If that is case, I know how to fix it, and will push a bug fix right away. A temporary fix on your end would also be to put the document inside a package. If the document is already inside a package, I do not straight away know what could be causing your issue. Do you have JDK 8 installed? The plug-in does not currently support any higher version.

Regarding issue tracking, I actually thought that it was public. Do you have access to this page (gitlab.stud.iie.ntnu.no/tobiaas/scene-builder-plugin/issues)? It could be that since this is my university's GitLab instance, projects are never actually public. If that is the case I will consider putting the project on my own GitHub page.

Thanks, and all the best
Tobias

The document is inside a package and I'm using JDK 8, so it seems the cause is still unclear for my case.

I can access this page, but when I click the 'New issue' button I get redirected to a log in page with no visible way to create a new account. So I can access the issues, but not report a new one.

Very strange... Could you perhaps send me the project you're working on? Or a screenshot/description of the project structure.

I see. I will put the project on my public GitHub page as soon as possible.
