First off I am fairly new to Java - with about 6 months experience. I was wondering if it was
possible to create a page (in JBuilder 6) within an application where the user could customize
their own GUI. The user would be able to add/delete: buttons, radio buttons, combo boxes, labels and a title which could be saved and the source code would be automatically generated. Any
connectivity would be the users responsibility. Essentially, the page would simply be act as a
portal to another program (whatever program) from within the product application. I'm not sure
if I've given enough info but it's pretty much all I've got myself. I would really like to know
if it's ever been done before. Thanks for any direction or help you can offer, I hope this made
sense.

Andy29,

Please change your user name to follow the JavaRanch User Name Guidelines. Your user name is required to be in the format "First Name" + space + "Last Name"... a name like "Shawn Anderson" should work fine...

This is definitely possible... in fact, I believe JBuilder provides something like this in it's "GUI Builder"... To see another example look at the JavaBeans tutorial and download the BDK (Bean Development Kit), and take a look at the BeanBox... it's exactly what you are describing!
