I'm just getting into Java and am interested in finding a way to develop a GUI and have the initialization and code stubs generated.

Are there lots of IDEs that do that? Which is the favorite or best for a beginner.

The application I'll be building, to learn Java, is a Suduko solver so I'll need to be able to display a Suduko form, enter the given numbers in the proper fields then click something to start the solving. I hope to flash on the form what different steps in the solving are being looked at.

Thanks for any help.

If you really are a beginner, you are probably better off not using an IDE at all.
There's lots in the Java Tutorials, there is help for taming GridBagLayout onwww.horstmann.com, there are books; some of the staff on JavaRanchhave written them.
