Simple and intuitive java swing layout manager

With all the web apps hype, I still think desktop apps have their place. But talking about it means digressing from the main topic. I had to create a simple Java Swing based form and after using GridBagLayout, my form was all ugly. So, after a bit of research for the alternate layouts, I came across this wonderful layout manager called
river layout which is an LGPL component and is less than 6kb. You can’t ask for more!
