    what I mean is... an app where you can create a swing GUI by dragging and dropping elements, then generates the proper code for it. I've tried NetBeans, however it's Swing libraries are too advanced for other, more basic compilers.

    NetBeans would be your go-to IDE. What do you mean the libraries are too advanced for basic compilers? Java uses only a single compiler - and isn't it that there is only one SWING library?

    Sorry 'bout the mixup there hehehe.
    I agree with bacchus - Netbeans has the easiest swing GUI builder out there. Its very similar to XCode's interface builder. :)
    Regarding the basic compiler maybe you mean compiling it to a lower java version? I got this from the netbeans GUI building tutorial pages:
