Eclipse does Swing!

And I saw it with my own eyes, I even got a screen shot!

Well.... April Fools (in December none the less). I just used the Eclipse 2.1 M4 GTK version and set the GTK theme to metal. So if what was keeping you from using Eclipse was the "Oww My Eyes It's Purple" UI then here you go!

Note however that Eclipse still is missing a good a usable a functional any Swing GUI Editor. What's even funnier is that I can't find one for SWT or JFace either! As long as you only want people to write server side and JSP type then what Eclipse has is fine, but if you want people to write real GUIs with it, tools matter.
