Since JDK 7u6 is JavaFX 2 integrated to JavaSE on all major platforms (Windows, Linux and Mac). I think that it is time to start switch from SWING to JavaFX.
I use Eclipse 4.2 on Ubuntu 12.10 64bit with WindowBuilder Pro installed for SWING WYSIWYG design, but there is no plug-in with JavaFX GUI designer. Don’t worry, there is solution with using e(fx)clipse and JavaFX Scene Builder.
