What we can do to get this kind of layout

Options and possibilities:
1 — add the buttons in each row to a separate JPanel with FlowLayout and add these two JPanels to buttonPanel with a GridLayout(2,0) or a BorderLayout (using north and south sections)

2 – you could use the two JPanels but try a GridLayout in each JPanel instead of FlowLayout. One of the GridLayout constructors has an hgap and vgap option.

3 — again with the two JPanels you could try a GridBagLayout or a BoxLayout in each one. These two layout managers are more advanced...
