specifications

The Java Gui Builder program is designed to decouple the GUI building code from the rest of the application code, without hand-writing code.

It allows one to describe the layout of windows and controls using an XML file. A full DTD was written to allow on-the-fly validation.

Using an XML file to describe GUI components allows users the flexibility to rewrite their windows so that they suit their needs, without opening up the innards of the program to the users.

Java Gui Builder can run on any Swing enabled J2SE platform. JGB was tested against Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.1_08-b03) and Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.1_01-b01). If you want to build JGB, you will need J2SE 1.4 or better. It is not possible to build on 1.3, but can be used on 1.3.

Requirements:

Java API for XML Processing (JAXP)
JUnit
MockObjects
Apache Ant



Limitations:

No forward referencing
Currently, the XML source reads more like a script. Everything is done as soon as it is encountered. Even changing the order of declaration will not work, because then the text field will appear before it's label in the layout's order.
