This question is WAY to broad to give sane advice. You might want to
state your context, objectives and restrictions are.

Since you brought up Matlab, I suspect you're going after a scientific
problem, involving data entry and display. In that case I'd say you're
pretty well off using Matlab, since, well, it specific purpose is just
that (GUI-wise, I mean).

As MatLab has a very lousy GUI,
any other language would be an advantage ;-)

The best is Delphi,
second is VB,
then comes SciLab, Python, etc
I don't know where Java fits in.

But as Wildemar said, your question is much to broad.

cheers,

That sounds mostly like a personal preference :)

I would certainly suggest Python very much for any kind of gui.

What's weird about it? Lots of software products are dual-licensed, e.g.
MySQL, Perl.

Haven't seen any free visual layout program for swing, swing is
somewhat messy - unnecessary complex layout classes. Compile - run
cycle without visual layouting is pain. Swing look is unnatural,
native looks are buggy.

glade + pygtk works well for me (in linux).

Try BoaConstructor and the wxPython library, both are wonderfull. If
you don't mind using Java Swing, and there are good reasons for that,
go for jython. It simplifies the java swingcode so much you don't have
to use a graphical GUI builder anymore :)
