is there some sort of visual editor plugin for eclipse that most people use to do swing development?
or is swing development typically done just using code?

Eclipse does have a visual editor (crazy enough it is called Visual Editor).

I have used it on occasion, but like every visual GUI builder I have tried, I hated the code it produced so I tend to write my own GUI code. I can't talk for the general Eclipse community though.

ok, that is actually what i'm curious about, if the general eclipse development community generally uses a visual editor to produce code

Swing just seems to lend itself to handcrafted code. I believe that most Swing development is done "by hand."
