Does anyone know of a good editor/layout tool for Swing components? I'm new to Swing and don't have a lot of time to develop the components by hand. Any suggestions?

Webgain's Visual Cafe which costs money
or
Sun's Forte for Java, which is free.

Hi Robert,
download JEasy from www.jeasy.de.
It's a Java application to define Swing GUI and store them in XML.
The preview helps you to look what the several LayoutManagers like GridLayout and GridBaglayout do.
Have fun with Swing
