  Description     : framework helping you lay out and implement elegant Swing panels quickly and consistently

 The FormLayout has been designed to be powerful, flexible, precise and
 easy to learn and understand. It can significantly reduce the time to
 describe a form and to fill it with components. The layout manager
 introduces a unique layout feature: it honors the screen resolution and
 dialog font size to retain the layout proportions in different
 Also, we have seperated the layout task from the panel construction.
 Therefore we provide a set of non-visual builders that assist you in
 defining common panel layouts and in filling a form with components.
 The JGoodies Forms ships with general purpose builders and builders for
 specialized layout tasks. For example, the DefaultFormBuilder helps you
 build forms with one, two, three, or four columns. The ButtonBarBuilder
 specializes in building button bars.
 On top of these non-visual builders the JGoodies Forms provides
 factories that create the most frequently used layouts, panels, bars
 and stacks. We recommend to use the factory methods whenever possible;
 future releases may map a logical panel creation to a concrete creation
 method that honors the platform and look&feel, for example the Mac vs.
 Windows button bar layout, where Mac has the default button in the
 right hand side and Windows in the left.

(and the main interest for me is that it's a dependency for FreeMind
The good news is that the library compiles with free java tools (already
succeeded with free-java-sdk).

Cheers, Eric
