I would like to enhance the initial setup of my application with a database setup wizard. As I support 3 different database types which will all require different type of connection wording, instance name, ,schema SID I see the wizard being required to take numerous paths depending on the users initial selection.

I would welcome any advice on the best Java Swing/AWT components which could be used to accomplish this without getting into a visual and design nightmare. Currently I do all my design work using WindowBuilder Pro.

Any thoughts or experience on doing something similar would be most appreciated.

Have you got the code for your connections all set up already?
