    I think it's always worth learning to create a GUI by hand to start with. You will understand what is happening a lot better and this can only make you a better programmer in the future.

    But as you will start to learn, programming a Swing GUI is very time consuming! I think everyone who builds mainly GUI applications will be using Netbeans simply to save time.

    The only GUIs I make are either game related or websites, I'm not much of a swing fan I'm afraid
