IBM has updated its well known Reflexive User Interface Builder for constructing and rendering graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for Java Swing and Eclipse Standard Widget Toolkit (SWT) based upon a descriptive XML document. Version 1.1 includes the capacity to validate Eclipse SWT GUIs, generate Java source for GUIs constructed by RIB, and embed Java source code in RIB documents.

See the new article on RIB that shows you how to build UIs with Reflexive User Interface Builder
Does anyone know how this compares to swixml?
Does anyone know if you can plug your layout manager like jgoodies form for example using RIB ?
I can suggest an alternate approach. I use TableLayout as opposed to FormLayout, as you can integrate TableLayout with the Netbeans form builder (at least upto 3.6).
Both TableLayout and FormLayout achieve the same results, although FormLayout tends to accomplish it with less amount of code.
If you really want a visual editor for FormLayout, I suggest you try JFormDesigner.
