    Default Problem in GroupLayout ?

    I have developed one Swing program in my JDK6 sytem by using Grouplayout.
    It works pretty well. But when i try to compile the same program in JDK 5 , I am getting compile time error. This is because JDK 5 does not have GroupLayout Class.
    Is there any JAR available which has GroupLayout class.

    No, GroupLayout is part of the Java 6 API which means you cannot use it in earlier versions.

    ra4king,

    Is there any way to use GroupLayout in Java 5 by adding external JARs?

    No, unless someone makes a jar file containing all new classes added to Java 6 because there might be some new classes that GroupLayout depend on.

    ozzyman,

    Thanks for the file. but it shows compiler error in the following import statement.

    import static java.awt.Component.BaselineResizeBehavior;
    import static javax.swing.LayoutStyle.ComponentPlacement;

    Those classes are also new in Java 6.

    Solution: stop fannying about. Either upgrade to version 6 or use a different layout manager.

    or layout managers. What GUI configuration are you trying to achieve with all of this? Do you have an example as an image?

    They are both very simple (enum) classes...

    Java Code:
        public enum ComponentPlacement {
            RELATED,
            UNRELATED,
            INDENT;
        }
    Java Code:
     public enum BaselineResizeBehavior {
            CONSTANT_ASCENT,
            CONSTANT_DESCENT,
            CENTER_OFFSET,
            OTHER;
        }
