I've tried it, prefer to write code by hand.
Easier, faster, and better code as a result.

For prototyping Swing I use my trusty JBuilder 2005 Developer for the basic layout, then complete that by hand.

Like jwenting, I found that once you have created a Swing GUI or two it's easier to get exactly what you want by coding it yourself.
