Here are some that you should look at:

Build GUIs with the Eclipse Visual Editor project

Demo: create a customized panel with the Visual Editor

BWT, if you are interested in an easier to use, more powerful Swing GUI builder for Eclipse, take a look at Swing Designer. Unlike the VE, Swing Designer provides visual support for creating menus and popup menus. It also supports all standard Swing widgets and layouts (including JDK 1.4 features like SpringLayout, JSpinner and JFormattedTextField).
