If you are building a really complex GUI, it may be best to create it in
Java and link to that from Mathematica using J/Link. One advantage of
this approach, is that you do end up with an industry standard GUI,
which can be important if it is to be used by non-Mathematica users.
My Super Widget Package makes it easy to create a Java GUI from
Mathematica (available free from my website), using (hopefully
reasonably elegant) Mathematica code, but there is no building tool -
ultimately, I suppose, because I am not very keen on using a GUI to program!
BTW, you certainly could not (usefully) paste NetBeans code into
