Is there an IDE that allow us to make Java GUI similar to using C# and visual studio? That is, dragging and dropping buttons etc?

    This Question is vague and unfocused. Do you want a desktop or mobile app? If so, will you be working in JavaFX, Swing, or SWT? Or a web app (Vaadin, etc.)? Consult a discussion site such as JavaRanch.com to get orientated. Once your specific needs are clear, with a list of criteria, come back to post here (searching here first, of course).
