Hi!, I am new to Java and SWING and this forum. I want to develop an IDE for easily creating layout's and GUI's using SWING components as a mini project for myself. I have looked at Forte which appears to be a professional edition of what I want to do. Could anyone point me in the right direction to start? Like what standards the IDE shd conform to , usability etc? I am at specing stage now.
