6.6. Component Organizers and Decorators

We conclude the discussion of advanced Swing features with a presentation of components that help organize other components. These include the split pane, a mechanism for splitting an area into multiple parts with boundaries that can be adjusted; the tabbed pane which uses tab dividers to allow a user to flip through multiple panels; and the desktop pane that can be used to implement applications displaying multiple internal frames. We will close with a discussion of layers—decorators that can be superimposed over other components.
