how about gridbaglayout parameters like gridx, weightx, fill anchor etc?
most of all, sleep well and think clear during the test. good luck

This was a post made by bill williams, I was just a little unclear of what he meant here. Can Bill or anyone elaborate as to whether much attention should be payed for those gridbaglayout parameters mentioned above?
TIA

I think what he means is understand what these GridBag properties does?
For example
gridx is the x-coordinate on the grid, which can be visualized in two dimension.
weightx is if the frame is resized, what to do with the extra space. This is for the x-direction.
anchor is how would you want to anchor your component, for eg N, NW, NE, S, SE, SW, E & W.
for fill I don't know on top of head, but any java book with GridBagLayou will have this info....
Hope this helps!!!

it is part of the exam.
you have some chance of getting GridBagLayout questions (although it will be at most 1 ).
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
