Smile Eclipse 3.7 and more software - how do I do that?


Hi,

"Zilly kvesion" - but, hey, my annual hollyday started last night (two weeks) so...

I use Eclipse to develop Java software. I'd like to install some more extras, but...there's nothing to install, possibly because I did'nt set the source.

I need a visual editor (GUI's) and an emulator for mobile devices. Hoping to find that in the Eclipse package...

Any hints?

Tnx

Thor

In my experience Eclipse works a bit differently in that you don't set a single source but rather multiple sources for different components you want to install. For example, if you install an Android emulator, it will have a different source than a GUI editor like Jigloo. The Eclipse Marketplace can be a decent starting point to find things though.

By the way, in my opinion, GUI editors are a mixed bag. Yeah, you can lay out an interface easily, but the code those things generate is pretty incomprehensible and really prone to weird layout issues. After struggling with GUI editors for a bit, I decided they are more trouble than they are worth and forced myself to learn how to use layout managers.

Well, I'm there now, but designing a GUI begins with ... pencil and paper. So, okay, I seem to be on the right track here...

Thanks for the link, I'll dive str8 into it!
