Is there any easy IDE that lets you build a easy GUI with Java? I wish you could comply native Java using VS! :P

Since you're a bit past the beginner stage, how about Netbeans? It's the one that the
Oracle Java tutorials use. http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/uiswing/learn/index.html

I think I tried it out but for some reason I didnt like it.........Ill retry it now and see...

Either of the "serious" IDEs (Netbeans and Eclipse) is so functional that there's bound to be a massive learning curve. In both cases the first few days are going to be discouraging, but stick with it...

I currently use MyEclipse as my standard IDE.....

Re: IDE with good and easy GUI Java builder? 80 80

Maybe you should have mentioned that earlier.

I use Eclipse Juno with WindowBuilder http://www.eclipse.org/windowbuilder/ - works vey well for me.
If WindowBuilder works in MyEclipse then that would be a good choice.

Is there any special reason why you are using MyEclipse rather than "vanilla" Eclipse?

There is also a WindowsBuilder Pro which was previously a paid product but is now free thanks to Google. Never used it seriously but seems like it handles both SWT and Swing drag-n-drop GUI development and is available as an Eclipse plugin.

EDIT: Doh, beaten by James.
