My company has asked me to look into BB development for them. I've done quite a bit of reading and downloaded the eclipse environment for BB with the simulators and the Hello World up etc and all is working. But I've got some questions that they don't really answer and also I am more familiar with the dev environment of Visual Studio ( yes MS haters shuuush ) or even Borland Builder. The last mainly text ide I used was a dos c++ compiler over a decade ago.
Am I mistaken in that the Eclipse environment is purely driven in what could be termed "code behind"? For example in VS, you normally have some form of graphical layout which lets you set up your controls etc and then create the neccesary logic, events and methods in a class file behind that. ASP.Net is similare with the designer and code behind. Is this not the case for Eclipse? The demo code I've looked at, you declare your control\objects in code, there is no GUI for a design phase. This would be cumbersome as it would mean having to code the file, debug to a simulator and then shift controls to the correct positions and then debug again.
Is my Eclipse installation missing something perhaps or most likely have I missed a simple tab somewhere?
