    The Flowlayout with lay components out in the order that you add the components.

    You will find out better if you read the API doc for all the layout managers and see if any of them do what you want.

    I usually use GridBagLayout as layout manager for my applications, it is flexible enough in my opinion, and I do not have reply on setBounds() method.

    immutable objects
