I investigate current GUI Builders including at least SWT. Any technology is appropriate. A good design environment is important and probably the generated source code is XML or something like it. Does anyone use such GUI builder or know a project? Thank you..

Welcome to the Ranch.

Most of us here prefer to code. GUI builders have inherent problems, lack of portability, difficulty in understanding the code etc. If you search the forums you will notice many discussions which highlight these problems.

Thank you for noticing. It is probably on topic here, however.

I think IDEs is a better location, as that's what Guiseppe is looking for: an IDE with graphical editor. So I'm moving this thread.

But I do agree with Maneesh - coding by hand is better than using a GUI builder.
