jcreater is just a good editor. for advanced control of java,
try using Eclipse. It makes java programming a breeze and there is support for so many editors like design editor and so on. http://www.eclipse.org
btw, are you using jsps or it is a swing project.

You can also try netbeans
both of them are free.

Hi balbina,

First, you need a well structured source code. All the gui interface should be in separated classes from the functionnal classes.

Secondly, then you can use a tool to create a new gui interface replacing the gui classes, which call functionnal classes methods.

Hi Balbina

I wud also recommend u Eclipse for the reasons like

Eclipse is commonly used free IDE that also has plugins available.
pls do check it out
http://www.eclipse.org & eclipse/index.jsp">http://www.eclipse-plugins.info/eclipse/index.jsp

about Eclipse
Eclipse is three things : Ajava development environment, a tool integration platform and an open source community :)
The Java editor provides syntax highlighting , code compilation, code assist and several views to show you the structure of your code and tasks left to complete.
A full featured degugger is also included .
The Java environment contains integrated support for Apache Ant for doing builds . Eclipse supports unit Testing with integrated JUnit support.

I think have a go at Eclipse and use it and then you will yourself realise all its positive things

also Netbeans is a  good IDE and it has plenty of plugins to expand its default capability (and it's free).
http://www.netbeans.org/

also u can have a look have JBuilder with its free community edition

good luck
