Examples of heavy GUI apps

Can people provide examples of java apps which are GUI intensive? I don't mean image viewers, unless there are lots of menus and tools in the program. I'm thinking of word processors, hex editors, 3d renders, whatever. I don't care about native widgets, SWT, or the like. I'm interested in heavy use of UI elements

Some I can think of -

- Abeille
- Eclipse
- NetBeans
- Azureus?
- Oracle9i (install program)

JDeveloper is another good one.

If you want an example of what a Java GUI should not look like, look at IBM DB2 7 and/or 8 on Windows.
