Design Swing GUIs intuitively by dragging and dropping GUI components from a palette onto a canvas, then click into JLabels, JButtons, JTextFields and edit the text directly in place. You can even use the GUI builder to prototype GUIs right in front of customers. The NetBeans IDE comes with built-in support for GUI localisation and accessibility.
