WindowBuilder is composed of SWT Designer and Swing Designer and makes it very easy to create Java GUI applications without spending a lot of time writing code. Use the WYSIWYG visual designer and layout tools to create simple forms to complex windows; the Java code will be generated for you. Easily add controls using drag-and-drop, add event handlers to your controls, change various properties of controls using a property editor, internationalize your app, and much more.

Hi! I've been struggling to get my WindowBuilder working. I've uninstalled and then installed the latest version(1.9.8). Additionally, my eclipse.ini file already has the "--illegal-access=permit" line. I am baffled as to what could be preventing it from working as the GUI elements of my existing projects are loading fine, I simply cannot add to them using the WindowBuilder design tab.

There are some things we can thank Google for them.
WindowBuilder is one of them. I want to thank Google and all other contributor to WindowBuilder project for every single LOC they wrote for this project.
It's amazing how it generates pure Swing/SWT code and how it parses it's own or hand-written one easily like it's nothing. I'm so glad that it has the option to work with XWT and xml but it doesn't rely on it. I love the fact that it works with any kind of custom Component or L&F. I love it's support for various layout manager (unlike some random IDE).
In fact WindowBuilder taught me Swing and SWT.
It is kind of sad that Google lost interest in Eclipse in general. It's sad that it doesnt support GWT. If we had active development on it, it could be a better Vaadin Designer alternative.
