Oh Yeah........something which enables the users to copy and paste the buttons which are present on the interface itself........

This is a difficult problem. What is your main goal? Are you trying to build a gui editor?

Just shooting from the hip, but I would think that you would want to create your own buttons that extend the normal components and then extend the current java cut and paste utility. Maybe have an interface called Copyable or something like that and then have the new cut and paste utility look for components that are copyable and go from there...
