NetBeans: VB for Java?

I was talking to someone at the Colorado Software Summit
during the welcome reception Sunday night and I mentioned
how Java didn't seem to be generating too many desktop applications
considering how long Java has been around. It seems like the
server is the place for Java.

He said he had been using Sun's NetBeans and really liked it a lot,
and that creating GUI desktop apps was very simple. He made it
sound like it was on par with VB, or at least that it simplified
creating the UI enough that it was very worthwhile. Sounds like it's
worth a try.

I wonder if it works with SWT components, as well?
