Hi friends,

I am new to AWT, I was practicing AWT to make some GUI which later i should modify and use in my project. I saw a GUI in one website and was planning to design like that, but i am not sure which layout manager i should be using. Attaching an image of the same.

First off, why AWT and not Swing, which is much more flexible? As for layout managers, take your pick -- and remember that you can nest containers, each with its own layout, to achieve any desired result.

I'd definitely split up the user interface into three parts:
- the left panel.
- the button bar.
- a JTabbedPane with the rest.

Work on those separately before pasting them together.

You may want to check out your own look&feel afterwards to tweak the looks, but first I'd get the layout working.
