I've sketched my GUI out on paper. I'm pretty sure I can get it to work nicely with Border and GridLayout. However, GridBagLayout offers that great flexibility.
What LayoutManager did you guys use, and why?

I have used GBL - as it allows me to fix places for various components - I have a Frame in which there are 3 panels - in each one I have used GBL.
It is a bit time consuming but it is sure shot
