I am trying to draw an automata, but the problem is that I have several states, to position these states i generates two random numbers for x and y positions, but I got a drawing that is not pretty (nodes overlap) , here is my code , have u a much better idea

Random RandomNumber = new Random();
int number1 = RandomNumber.nextInt(200) ;
int number2 = RandomNumber.nextInt(200) ;
Object v1 = graph.insertVertex(parent, null, "blabla", number2, number1, 80,30,"shape=ellipse");
Object v2 = graph.insertVertex(parent, null, "blabla", number1, number2, 80,30,"shape=ellipse");
graph.insertEdge(parent, null, "blabla", v1, v2);

The nodes are placed where you put them. Try using a layout to automatically arrange the nodes. See examples.

Your download didn't contain the examples?
