I saw AWT Components in the palette but I was not able to find how to
create a Window, Frame or Applet as main container of my application
(just Swing containers). Any tip?

Thanks in advance,

Chemi.

WindowBuilder does not provide wizards for AWT, but it still can render it.
There is one trick that we don't allow Window+ have layout, but if you put Panel on it manually, you will able to continue using WB.
import java.awt.Dialog;
import java.awt.Frame;
import java.awt.Panel;

public class Dialog_1 extends Dialog {
  public Dialog_1() {
    super((Frame) null, "My Dialog");
    add(new Panel());
  }
}

As Konstantin said, WB can render and edit AWT UIs, but we don't provide wizards to create new ones.

Encouraging the use of raw AWT is not something we want to do. You should either use Swing or SWT.
