I write desktop GUI applications from time to time for my personal usage. What are my best possibilities in terms of choosing the framework/solution in which I would write my application really fast.

My projects usually consist of less than 10k lines of code (in Java) or several days of programming.

For example I've tried Griffon - it's a nice solution but the compile/run time is not as fast as I'd like it to be.

The programming language (C,C++,Ruby,Groovy,Java,C#,Scala,Lisp,etc.) or framework doesn't matter - my aim is the speed of development. Target environment is Windows.

I'm gonna say that what really matters is how used to the framework you are. There are tons of frameworks that are used by thousands of people daily. Development is always gonna be as fast as how you use the tools that you have. –  José Valente Dec 27 '12 at 23:00

It's hard to tell what your best possibilities are because there are a lot of frameworks out there serving different needs. You have to test them out and pick the one you like the best and makes you the most productive.

For Java there are a bunch of application frameworks such as (but not limited to):
