The new Swing Designer in JBuilder 2008 saves developers time and effort in creating GUI interfaces for their applications. The new Swing Designer allows developers to focus on creating application‐specific functionality rather than coding the low‐level logic of the graphical user interface.

JBuilder’s comprehensive UI construction tools enable rapid development of Java Swing and AWT applications. The visual designer, wizards, editors, and intelligent layout assistance support the most popular controls and layout managers. Swing Designer provides full bi‐directional code generation ensuring that the visual design and the source remain in 100% synchronization.

Additional information about the Swing Designer can be found in the JBuilder 2008 Reviewers Guide.  You can also find additional information on the JBuilder product page.
