Creator has recently picked up two nice awards. Creator is the "Java Tool or Add-in of the Year" at Developer.com
Also, eWEEK Labs has picked Java Studio Creator 2 as the most attractive developer tool for 2005!
The Early Access version gave me the kind of drag-and-drop convenience that developers expect after years of experience with Microsoft's Visual Basic or Borland's JBuilder and Delphi. It not only worked well when used as intended but also resisted my attempts to confuse its cooperating tools.
