Start here. I suggest you do not use any GUI builder like Netbeans, as you will not understand the code it generates. Write your user interfaces like you write normal code instead; that's how people like Darryl Burke, Rob Camick, Michael Dunn, Pete Stein, Maneesh Godbole and I do it, and I dare say we are some of the most experienced Swing users in this forum.

Thanks for your advice Rob.

However i read we can use Spring framwork(Not as GUI Builder) to develope Swing applications, there we will separate all our classes like below for example

MyActionListener.java
MyJButton.java
MyJFrame.java
MyJPanel.java
MyJTextField.java

then we will configure all the above classes in app-context.xml then we will point this xml file in a SpringLauncher.java.

I have tried this example and it works fine.However i am not sure how feasible this technique using Spring framwork will work if we go for any large development.

is any of you using Spring Framework with eclipse for Swing development ??
