I want a program that when I copy in a block of Java Swing code, that will compile the code and show me what the Swing component looks like in real time. Having to continuously run my code to see what the GUI looks like is really annoying.

  • I have not heard of swung and can't find it in a web search. Did you mean Swing: stackoverflow.com/tags/swing/info ? How do you copy the code that is quicker than a command or button to compile and run it? Also which programs have you tried? NetBeans, Eclipse, any plugins? Explain that and you might attract the attention of someone who has found a solution that meets your needs.

  • NetBeans, Eclipse, and other plugins are for creating code. I need to edit code that has been created already, and therefore, those solutions don't really work. – ws04 Jan 29 '16 at 17:25
  • Yes, I meant swing, edited. – ws04 Jan 29 '16 at 17:26
  • @ws04 you've missed the swung title :) – Izzy Jan 29 '16 at 18:37

    Search for two-way gui development : that way you might find plugins that convert your code to GUI, as well as the other direction. Also, I still don't understand the difference between "compile in real time" and "continuously run". You need to explain clearly what annoys you about the tools you have tried. – Qsigma Jan 29 '16 at 19:00
