I have developed some web applications before and everything is well documented and there is a framework for anything. I am new to Swing and desktop application development and I found that documentation is sparse and you have to figure out a lot of things by experimenting.

I've been googling for a few hours on how to setup NatTable and I couldn't find anything. I was surprised no one asked the question before. I just want some instructions on how to get the basics working on Eclipse and NetBeans. I was using Eclipse in the past but I think I will use NetBeans for this project as the Swing GUI editor is better.

Is NatTable exclusive to Eclipse or will it also work with NetBeans? If someone can post screenshots of the setup procedure, that would be awesome.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

NatTable is a SWT control and in the current architecture not available for Swing applications. If you manage to use SWT controls in a swing application it might work, not sure if that makes sense.

Typically you install NatTable via update site http://www.eclipse.org/nattable/documentation.php?page=getting_started

Alternatively you can download the jars directly.

Thanks for the fast response. I read up a bit more on SWT and have figured out how to run the example.

I guess I will have to find another plugin for my spreadsheet. If not I will just use JTable.
