simple interface designer
I downloaded eclipse because I've seen it used for all sorts of languages and that it is a fully featured editor. However, the main thing I wanted it for was to build swing/awt windows with it, and I am baffled as to how to even begin this.
Could someone recommend a good tutorial about eclipse's interface designer, or recommend a more simple designer? I'm using bluej right now, I really like the simplicity but I would like to be able to build a GUI in a WYSIWYG sort of way.C:\DOS > C:\DOS.RUN > RUN.DOS.RUN

Eclipse UI Builder
Mate as far as I know there is only a plugin that you can download and install to use an Interface builder. I have not used it but as I have heard the code that it creates is a real mess!! I have only used eclipse for my java development projects and I did not faced any problem. However I have heard that Netbeans provide an interface builder and more user friendly interface. If you are extremely newbie to eclipse I would advice to switch and use Netbeans for your applications.
People can also tell you more things about the most suitable IDE for you.
Hope it helped!!
Since you're as student of Java and GUI, I strongly advise that you not create your GUIs via WYSIWYG dragging and pasting. You are far far better off at this stage going through the Sun Swing tutorials and then creating your GUIs by hand. Later as you understand more, then sure, use a GUI creator to make a prototype if desired, but you can do it with knowledge of what is going on behind the scenes and can then create more than the most rudimentary of GUIs.

Best of luck
