Unfortunately Matisse has the same problems as all other GUI builder I know:
- it creates components themself (I seem not to be able to use own
component references, which - for example - were created by an own
- it requires Java Beans (public no-arg constructors)
For example, our JTable needs a model as constructor parameter, our
JScrollPane needs the content component as a constructor parameter, our
JTree requires a model. Of course this could be solved, but we tend to
make as much fields as possible final.
If the above problems would have been solved, I would agree, Matisse

I did a quick search of the archives and have not seen Matisse, Netbeans'
new GUI RAD, mentioned, nor have I stumbled across it when I have a chance
to read the list. (I've also seen enough posts about tools I figured this
is relatively on topic.)
That Matisse has apparently not been mentioned is now so a grave disservice
I feel I should rectify the omission. ;^)
If you make end user GUIs, you should give the recently released alpha
version of Matisse a try. I worked as a VB6 programmer for many years and
.NET after that, and this is the first Java GUI builder I've seen that
approaches VB6 and Windows.Forms' ease of use. Its promise really is that
It runs very well on my iBook G4, 1.2 GHz, 1.25 Gigs RAM. Some incomplete
features in there, and its ability to "infer" what you intend your GUI to do
on resize is still iffy imo, but if you're using GridBagLayout for tough
forms, your prayers have been answered.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
