I am a beginner in Java, and want to ask JAVA community what tools are popular for building Java based GUI app.

While searching in web i already have found  Swing, SWT, JGoodies. I am not the new one in this technologies but i want to know what other people like to use.

Also, if you use Swing, tell what Layout manager you use most of all. I prefer BoxLayout.

    I tend to use NetBeans, but if you are talking automated gui development, I usually don't; all of them that I have tried generate ugly code that I don't care to use or maintain.
