WYSIWYG Java Based Web Applications
I just downloaded my free copy of Sun Java Studio Creator and started playing with it. My initial impression of the tool is that it is pretty cool. When I started a new web application project the IDE presented me with a grid layout and a palette of components to select from on my left. The components included are all the basic ones a developer would expect a WYSIWYG tool to have and although I didn't do this myself it looks as though a developer could easily add their own as well. From there it was simply a matter of Drag and drop with the ability to resize and reposition those component. There is even the ability to view properties for individual JSF components and, in some cases, connect them to a database for persistence or retrieve of data.
The whole things reminded me of Visual Basic 6 from back in the day. This looks to me to be a pretty nice RAD tool. However, I would only know the truth of its usefulness when I try it with a real project. At this point the book cover looks cool enough for me to pull it off the shelf.
