These layout managers are described in the WindowBuilder docs at:

developers.google.com/java-dev-tools/wbpro/layoutmanagers/swing/jgoodies_formlayout

and

developers.google.com/java-dev-tools/wbpro/layoutmanagers/swing/miglayout

where the docs for each one state that they're only available in the Professional version of the product. Since the tool is now free, as far as I can tell, I'm wondering where these layouts have gone? I don't see them as an option in the Layout category. I tinkered with trying to directly import the JGoodies jars but that didn't work out. I've done quite a bit of searching but haven't found any information elsewhere.

(Note: because I have fewer than 5 messages it won't let me directly specify hyperlinks above. Very lame.)

Those layouts haven't gone anywhere. They are both shipped with the tool and are on the palette. I just tried both of them and they worked fine.

I'm not sure why you aren't seeing them. A screenshot (or more detailed description) of what you are seeing would be helpful.

This is what I'm seeing.
index.php/fa/17050/0/

The "Formlayout" generates an instance of org.eclipse.swt.layout.FormLayout.FormLayout, not from JGoodies.

In that context, FormLayout should generate org.eclipse.swt.layout.FormLayout.FormLayout.

You are looking at SWT layouts rather than Swing layouts.
