Hi.
I have just little experience with swing.
Right now, I just to build a simple app that will display some data to the user. However, I don't know which gui/plugin/ide i should use.
I want something with drag and drop components (delphi/jbuilder style) which is free. So, what are my best choices with ides/guis/pluings, etc...?
Thanks.

I have heard JFrameBuilder recommended by a couple of people and Eclipse is supposed to be improving its GUI design features.

To be honest though, none of these tools are going to produce code that is as good as an experienced programmer - and experience only comes from practise
If it is a simple application you may find it easier to write the code yourself.

Thanks Stuart!
I'll check them out. BTW, my major problem is that I need to build this fast and I don't have experience with swing.

JGoodies is very popular in these forums; if you download it, you'll find a tutorial and a demo that shows several layouts

boa sorte
