New ULC Visual Editor for Eclipse 3.0.1 available

New ULC Visual Editor for Eclipse 3.0.1 available
Canoo releases drag-and-drop user interface editor for Eclipse and UltraLightClient

Basel, December 06, 2004 - Canoo today announced that it has released ULC Visual Editor 3.0 for Eclipse 3.0.1. ULC Visual Editor is a "drag-and-drop" user interface designer for UltraLightClient and Eclipse 3.0.1. Using this new editor, Java developers can visually compose rich, desktop-like graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for enterprise web applications within the Eclipse development environment.

Build Rich Internet Applications Visually

The newly enhanced ULC Visual Editor helps developers to visually design web applications with Canoo's Java library for Rich Internet Applications, UltraLightClient. The ULC Visual Editor is based on Eclipse Visual Editor 1.0.1, which uses the Java Beans component model.

Using the new visual class wizard, developers can easily create reusable user interface dialog components: an added benefit for prototyping and large-scale GUI design. In addition, direct editing of text and title properties on the canvas and in the Java Bean Tree, and events on ULC widgets are now supported in the new version.

While editing a visual class within Eclipse, the ULC Visual Editor displays the UltraLightClient widget set in a palette. The palette lists ULC containers, components and menus. To build a user interface, a container is added to the canvas by drag-and-drop, and the required ULC widgets are positioned in the container.
