Pointers to Swing examples

Hi everyone
I'm building an Swing application, my first one to be exact, and I'm having a hard time to put my components where I want them to be on the screen.
Does anyone know of any books, links or whatever to a couple of tutorials on Java LayoutManagers?


Thanks a lot

Sun has a ton of tutorials available for Java (people always forget this), including one on Swing:

Some of the entries in Swing Sightings may also have source available:

Have a look at http://www.jgoodies.com as well.

I will add to the suggestion for Jgoodies.  Use the plastic look and feel, along with the forms layout manager.  I cannot recommend them highly enough.
