Personally, I've never used a GUI-Builder, if that's what you are looking for - I've always hand-coded my GUIs, and it worked really well.

Having said that, there is a lot of fuss about Matisse, so Matisse4Eclipse might be worth a look.

I agre with Ilja. I haven't met a GUI builder that writes code the way I would. It always ends up being a big mess of code that looks nothing like the MVC code that you would write that is easy to maintain outside of the GUI Builder. But then again, I will be honest the stuff that Visual Studio creates for VB UIs, isn't pretty code either, that is why they even hide that code when you use Visual Studio.
