I mean I am interested in their default settings... Netbeans, in comparison, doesn't do "new line" functionality if line is longer than 80char by default :/

Don't forget if you use code in your assignment which is not yours (and is generated by a GUI designer) you could fail.
well my friend went for the oracle course, and they teaches using netbeans for OCMJD. I doubt you will fail for using netbeans GUI designer because you can argue even their oracle university uses it to teach.

If for example you have dependencies on some specific NetBeans classes (used by their GUI designer) you'll certainly fail. If it uses for example the NullLayout, you can almost be sure it was made using a GUI designer and you'll certainly lose points because that's hard to maintain if you want to add/remove extra components. And in worst case scenario you could fail.
oh they don't use nulllayout, they use group layout which is available in 6.0. (actually java adopted it from netbeans) anyway that is history.
