    I have never heard of JWizard.
    What do you mean by it?

    Sorry for not being clear enough.
    I mean that there is no official swing component for wizard.
    So what *do* you do when you need one?

    I'm not sure what you mean. Swing components are standard. It is possible to make different looks on different platforms or use the plain jane AWT look. Either way, the swing components are the same on every platform for the most part. Maybe I don't understand what you're looking for?

    Are you asking if there is a program (a 'wizard' in windows speak) that automatically just builds a GUI for you? Then no, not for any language. There is no way for the computer to know what you want in your gui and where to put it.

    As far as an easy GUI creator, NetBeans has one built in that lets you drag'n drop GUI components into position and it writes 90% of the code for you (a la visual basic).

    A lot of GUI frameworks (QT for example) provide a Wizard component.
    There are some wizard APIs for Java as well, I was wondering if anyone could recommend one for.
    It is really surprising to me that this thread is so sleepy. I was sure I was raising a flame war.
    Any way I looked at a wizard api:
    wizard.dev.java.net
    and I though it looks good and was wondering if anyone has any experience with it or any other wizard.
    Maybe I should have asked at the swing forum? (wizards seemed such a basic part of GUI building that I was sure it should be posted at "New To Java")
