My idea for a more productive and intuitive alternative to window management would be a 'docking window manager' that imitates VS-style docking.

In Java it is called "Layout". There are many different ways to let user change the layout (and one of the ways is docking). But underlying implementation is still the same - old plain layout manager.

There is the LayoutManager interface, you can see all its implementers here. Having such a solid base all that is required from developer is to implement some UI controls for interactive layout management. And actually some UI controls are already implemented and included into the default JRE class library. And much more UI controls are implemented by independent vendors.
