I am beginner in java application developing.... Which one is better for creating a GUI using swings either Manual coding or IDE(NetBeans,eclipse)..? drag and dropping components to frame v/s manually coding from scratch!!! I want frame with many components like label, textfield, buttons etc... When i click a button some group of components are to be loaded on frame and onclicking another button old components shud be replaced by new components...
I think NetBeans is the better IDE. But due to sake of simplicity and less resource requirement most of the developers are using the NetBeans IDE.
