Java/Swing documentation and user guides talk a lot about how layouts should be used, but the fact is that Java Swing default layouts are not really that helpful in following those guidelines. To create simple UIs, I often need to create at least a few layouts, using usually a mixture of SpringLayout, BorderLayout and FlowLayout.
Luckily I just came across ParagraphLayout from JHLabs. In general, great article – good stuff guys!
