The screenshots look like pretty standard for a 3D modeler. What features are you wondering about specifically?

Is it that it's MDI at all? If so then Swing does MDI with JDesktopPane.

If you talking about the particular look of that MDI application then you can look for existing Swing LnFs that might approximate that look (or design your own), or use undecorated JInternalFrames and paint them any way you like.

On Windows, you'd use
Note that the Windows LAF is only available under Windows; on other platforms this will select the OS X or Motif or GTK LAF, whatever is appropriate.

No, everything needed to use Swing is part of the JRE.
