How about on Linux?

Does anyone have this plugin working on NetBeans 8.x on Linux? I keep getting org.jdesktop.application missing errors.

How to launch Swing GUI Builder

I was able to install this plugin on NetBeans v8.0.2. However I am unable to see the Swing GUI builder for a class in an existing Swing project. Can anyone help me with this?

Keep maintaining for future NB releases


I discover this plugin only today !

Splendid work! This plugin works fine with NB 74 (in fact I downloaded the 43853 one).

I was really angry when NB stopped the support for Java Desktop applications without giving help to convert them. Now, I can read again and update my old Java Desktop applications without having to port them to the NB Platform! Please, keep maintaining this plugin for future NB releases!

Thanks again.

Appears to Work in 7.3.1 Dev 201305072300

I haven't done extensive testing but I was able to create a new Swing app in 7.0 and then open, modify, compile and run it in 7.3.1 Dev 201305072300.

NetBeans 7.

Is this working in NetBeans 7.2 and 7.3 ?

RE: They're the same.

Perhaps they should be consolidated into a single plugin then, before they start branching away from each other.

Also, I noticed that onkentes's version is marked as having failed verification, due to a NOGO vote. Does yours have the same problem?

They're the same.

They're the same created by two different people.

Multiple Swing Application Framework Support plugins

What is the difference between these two SAF Support plugins:

geertjan: http://plugins.netbeans.org/plugin/43836/swing-application-framework-support

onkentes: http://plugins.netbeans.org/plugin/43853/swing-application-framework-support

Has anyone tried both and compared them?
Are there advantages to one over the other?
