How-tos to GUI development IDEA-4.0

Hi All.

Swing-GUI development is pretty sophisticated with IDEA 4.0. It takes away most of the gory details of layout management from the end-programmer, the examples bundled with IDEA 4.0 are a good start, but beyond that it gets difficult to figure out how you want to play with the IDE. I was wondering if there is a comprehensive how-to.. to GUI development other than the one that comes with IDEA. books,online articles any pointers for the same be greatly appreciated.

thanks
Sidd.

Did you try the Flash demos, that are advertised on Jetbrains' home page?

I would really appreciate this. For instance I'm currently trying to figure out how to connect a resource bundle to a form. An example would be very helpful. Also I would be curious about the possibility of using a different (3rd party like JGoodies) look and feel as part of the preview for a form.
