There is a interesting post on java.net in Brabant’s blog this week giving his feedback from a demo of the upcoming Project Rave tool.
Brabant comments on some of the features demoed, including:
- the visual JSP/JSF page builder
- visual UI element to database binding
- an updated UI for the tool, which is supposedly still based on NetBeans, but is still a Swing application.
Apparently the audience was surprised to hear that the IDE was still based on NetBeans and Swing as it looked pretty good. There was some surprise to hear that Eclipse was not being used (as announced this week). Sounds like there are some Swing UI enhancements coming along soon as well…
