I use Eclipse when I use Java. I've heard IntelliJ is more VS-esque but it has issues with how it determines classpath sometimes. I haven't tried it personally. For Eclipse, I think the last time I did Swing stuff I used the WindowBuilder plugin which is nice.

Stay away from NetBeans unless you enjoy your IDE locking up for multiple seconds even on small projects when you, for example, edit the name of a commonly used class. It has really good default plugins but nothing you can't setup in Eclipse, and as mentioned it has bad lag issues in my experience (and one of the worst code-completion tools I've ever seen).
