I designed a few AJAX pages using YUI. The experience was mixed. Recently I came across GWT (google web toolkin),which converts your java code into AJAX and javascript.Now while designing applications in Java, I use the netbeans IDE, especially the functionality to drag and drop AWT and Swing components. (I did use layout managers before switching to netbeans so its not that I have completely skipped layout managers,but its just that I find the drag and drop thing faster). Unfortunately, GWT does not support AWT and swing, and it provides its own user interface api (widgets basically). Is there a possibility that I can use GWT user interface components in netbeans like normal java AWT and swing components ?
Or is there an IDE which supports drag and drop kind of functionality for creating AJAX based web applications?

GWT, and any other similar toolkits, merely end up generating HTML and JavaScript pages, and so are limited to what is possible within the usual boundaries. No toolkit can make a browser AWT-aware outside of applets.
