Hello.

First of all I hope I'm not asking something that has been answered many times before. I've been looking for it and I don't anything.

I'd like to know if there's any framework to ease the development of Java GUI apps. Something similar to Struts but GUI oriented. I'm developing a Swing application and it's a bit mess as I'm used to work with web apps.

Thank you very much.

I think the short answer is "No".

As far as frameworks, the Swing Application Framework had the most "buzz" for awhile, but that project lost momentum when the project lead left Sun. However a new lead has been assigned so perhaps the project will pick up again. This framework provides hooks into an application's lifecycle (launch(), exit(), etc.).

A GUI builder may help you out as well.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
