Is there any Swing Layout Manager which can be used to layout the components using Swings and obtain the HTML output based on the layout done.

I checked with TableLayout but it doesnt support the output or converting the layout to HTML code.

Basically i am looking to build a HTML editor with features like adding new custom controls apart from the standard ones supported in HTML. The custom controls could be like a Navigation control having buttons to move between records of a form, Date control having text field along with date icon for invoking pop-up calendar and so on. This Swing application will be used to develop the user interface for the maintenance screens of my web application. This is a "Form Builder" in which the forms are used in web application.

If you have any idea of already existing Swing layout which supports this or if i need to build or extend over the existing layout manager which caters to the above requirement then please let me know.

Thanks for the time.
