Could anyone please recommend a GUI designer (ie, a visual tool that allows you to design a JFrame, by dragging and dropping components) ?

I'd be especially grateful if anyone could recommend such a tool which he/she actually used for a "real life" project.

(BTW, I'm guessing many people would answer "forget about a designer, there's nothing like good old java coding"... that's what I do in my projects... but I'd really like to have a serious look at a designer !)

Thanx

the current favorite seems to be netbeans.

do yourself a favor, download netbeans, create a very simple gui,
just a frame, a label, a button - add an actionlistener to the button
to change the text of the label.

make sure you are sitting when you look at the code it generates.
