Swing and AWT using Visual J++

Hi All,

Does anyone know if there's a way to get Visual J++ to be able to use either Swing or AWT components in the form designer.  It seems that Visual J++ only allows you to drag and drop components from the WFC library onto a class that
extends Form.  

I enjoy using VJ++ because of the intellisense and color highlighting in the code editor but right now I have to create all my forms using Borland JBuilder2 if I want to use drag and drop UI creation (yes, I know I can create a UI without using drag and drop but I'm not into that kind of pain).

I know you can set the classpath in VJ++ to point to other .jar files (e.g. swingall.jar, jbcl2.0-rt.jar) and the intellisense will pick up on the packages to allow for easier coding, but the UI editor seems rather limited.

I've looked high and low and I can't find any info on this so if anyone can give me any help I'd appreciate it.  My feeling is that it's probably not possible but I thought I'd ask.

Thanks much,

Craig

Thanks.  I actually already found the 2LKit before your answer it but I'll give you the points for the other links.
