You should try NetBeans I suppose.

1) Swing is a proper noun

2) I, and many people with me, think that you shouldn't write user interfaces using a GUI builder. You will not know the internals of how event handlers etc work, and you will be unable to write GUI programs when you are forced to give up your IDE (like when your employer uses a different one).

Eclipse and IntelliJ have GUI builders as well. I, too, shy away from them.

Agree you should avoid IDEs' GUI builders for Swing code. You can, however, use the IDE to speed writing your own code.

Moving thread to our Swing forum, where we usually discuss GUI matters.
