Hi Guys,
Is GridBagLayout as a layout manager is too much for this assignment?

Hi Sam,
GridBagLayout is fine if you're comfortable with it. I didn't use it, preferring combinations of GridLayout, BorderLayout and FlowLayout. If you want total control on component positions GridBagLayout is your man.

I used GridBagLayout in my GUI and also Flow and Border. I like the almost total control you get with it GridBag, but it also depends what you are comfortable using and what gives you the desired effect you are achieving.
