> The XML UI Spec Builder looks promising. There is a GUI builder for Java that simply lets you design the GUI via drag-and-drop, use a property editor to set properties & callbacks, then it writes it out to an XML file. At run time, a small class reads the XML tree and builds the window. I can't determine exaclty how XML UI Spec Builder is inteded to be used, as the documentation is non-existent. Is it still under development? Does it allow DnD UI design?
Check out the stable squeak project at squeakfoundation.org.
As far as I remember it has some xml gui stuff.
