Visual IDE?

I am new to java, coming from C++ so its not too much different. I am use to writing my windows applications with the help of a visual editor to drag buttons on etc, yes it is very easy lol, and the same goes for WIndows Phone 7 development.  So is there such a thing for blackberry dev? I am running eclipse with the latest JDK and it seems a bit tedious manually designing and coding the graphical elements.

 

If not thats fine.

 

thanks!

Re: Visual IDE?

It was announced at one point but complications arouse (the company making it was bought by Google) and now it's never coming out.

 

In other words. The code that is generated by the VS GUI builder has to be done manually for BlackBerry.
