About XDEV Web Builder
XDEV Web Builder is a free GUI builder for Vaadin, which enables you to create modern and great looking user interfaces for the web and for mobile devices by using drag-and-drop. XDEV Web Builder also allows you to describe your interfaces with XML declaratively. You can switch between drag-and-drop and XML code at any time, because XDEV Web Builder works bidirectionally. After any changes, XDEV Web Builder finally generates Java code based on Vaadin, which Vaadin developers usually have to write by hand. So, XDEV Web Builder enables designers to create great looking web interfaces based on Vaadin, without the need to be a Java developer, saves a lot of time, and reduces the costs of your Vaadin projects.
XDEV Web Builder was initially developed for the Eclipse distribution RapidClipse. For this reason the RapidClipse variant has dependencies to the RapidClipse framework and provides its own UI component palette which extends the original Vaadin UI components. Because of, Vaadin developers mostly prefer to use original Vaadin UI controls, we have separated the GUI builder from the RapidClipse project and released as a stand-alone GUI builder for Vaadin.
XDEV Web Builder runs on the Eclipse platform and can be installed as any other Eclipse plugin.
