Netbeans is an IDE, which can be used to develop swing applications. If you are at a learning phase, I would recommend not using any IDEs. Hand coding is the easiest way to learn.

NetBeans is also application development platform. Meir Yan, you can use NetBeans core libraries (module) to develop
your UI or either headless application. But it is complex task which will give you profit
only when your application is large enough.

You may try to use Swing Application Framework which is intended to solve
common problems of building UI application.
NetBeans has deep integration with Swing App Framework,
and also visual form editor, so it's a good point
to use it as main development IDE for UI applications.

NetBeans might be all right for development, but it is completely useless for learning GUIs. It creates code which is incomprehensible for the beginner. If you have to use an IDE, write the GUI code by hand, until you are familiar with the syntax.
