Absolute alignment in AWT/Swing code

Reports usages of absolute alignment constants from AWT and Swing. Internationalized applications use relative alignment because it respects the locale component orientation settings.

Example:

JPanel panel = new JPanel(new BorderLayout(2, 2)); JLabel label = new JLabel("Hello World"); panel.add(label, BorderLayout.NORTH);

After the quick-fix is applied:

JPanel panel = new JPanel(new BorderLayout(2, 2)); JLabel label = new JLabel("Hello World"); panel.add(label, BorderLayout.PAGE_START);
