This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
The reason I am using setBounds is because I am having issues with the layout managers. The layout managers use predefined placements so customization of some components seems to not be possible. I know I will need more training on layouts and Java as a whole but the good thing is I can build useful working apps. Do you know of any quality Java training videos for free or of charge? I am looking for quality ones like the ones found for learnvisualstudio.net.
