+1 for bean-spec conform model - components!
+1 for bean-spec conform gui - components!

(overall +2 for bean-spec conform developement ;-))

-1 (or more) to IDE-specific code (just like VAJ). If you take a look at the
VAJ-toolintewgration GUI-code you'll notice that there isn't any specific
VAJ code in it! Of course it 1st was generated using VAJ, but after thet I
spend some time in code-beautification and optimizasion! Just some patterns
like "lazy-instantiation" are still in it - and this is IMHO - a fairly good
style of building (GUI)-code, for instantiation and initialization of
properties is in one place (in it's get-method). I am using this
implementation/pattern for GUIs even if there is no VAJ available for it is
more productive than any other handmade coding: you have nearly no chance to
make mistakes ;-). But still it is coding style. I just want to point out,
that it isn't VAJ specific! Really :-)!
