I request someone to provide information on any better Java based GUI framework other than Swing.

SWT/JFace. In many ways it is very similar to Swing as far as coding goes, but your GUI components will look like the native OS. I think it's pretty cool. I still like Swing too, just because I'm used to it. But I have to admit SWT/JFace is pretty awesome too!
