What GUI component does IDEA use for its sidebars?

Hi Folks

I need to write a Java/Swing app with sidebars such as those in IDEA ("Project", "Structure", "Find") etc.  Does IDEA use a publicly-available component for organizing these sidebars?

Thanks, Robin.

No, IDEA's ToolWindowManager is JetBrains' proprietary component.

Have a look at mydoggy docking framework at sourceforge (?) -- it pretty much mimics IDEA's docking behaviour. We have been using it quite successfully for our non-production applications.
