Are you asking for a recommendation for a Java IDE or for a GUI builder?

If you're looking for a GUI building, I would highly suggest Netbeans 5.0. They Matisse GUI building tool is quite impressive.

If you're just looking for a Java IDE, I would suggest either netbeans, eclipse, or ItelliJ from Jetbrains.
I agree. Here's the link:
