A public forum for discussing the design of software, from the user interface to the code architecture. Now closed.
I didn't download it, but from the screenshots and website I couldn't find any standout features.
Why is it better than borland, eclipse, etc ?

The reason it's better is that they focus on one thing and one thing only - laying out components. They realize that GUI builder's focusing on all possible things you could possibly think of end up failing the user. Their design philosophy spells out exactly why jvider succeeds where other Java GUI builders fail. From the website:
"Note, that I intentionally did not include item like "we want to be able to do everything in GUI builder, so that we don't need to go into the code at all." Because, although the wish is understandable, it is not possible. And trying to achieve it many GUI builders fail by becoming slow and complicated and still not being even close to the goal."
And this is why it's so great.
Interesting, how did you hear about jvider?

"Interesting, how did you hear about jvider?"
I finally got annoyed screwing around with Eclipse plugins, JBuilder GUI builders, etc and just decided to try a random web search for Java GUI builders and stumbled over jvider. I wasn't impressed by the pretty pictures either, but once I read their design philosophy, I immediately knew they got it. Or at least, it SOUNDED like they got it. I downloaded and tried it, and found out they pretty much did get it.
JWZ wouldn't be caught dead in a Java discussion thread.
No I'm just interested in the so called "Death of the RAD tools" trend that will soon be followed by the "RAD is in again" trend.
I'm downloading jvider as I type this.
