    I'm not sure I understand what you're asking. What is a "visual components plugin"?

    If you mean a WYSIWYG editor then there is GXT Designer, but I think it's for 2.x.

    If you mean the GXT 3.x API, you can either use Maven or download the JARs directly and add them as dependencies to your Eclipse project. Either way, the API will be available in your code.

    As far as I know there is no WYSIWYG designer plugin for GXT in Eclipse or any other IDE for that matter.

    Not that you asked, but IMO, designer applications that generate GUI code are great for prototyping but incredibly lousy for production quality code. That said, I've not used GXT's Designer application and cannot speak to the quality of code it generates.

    @icfantv: I agree.

    Generated code isn't a good base to create an application.
