the JToolBar that runs across the JFrame i have added with borderlayout to the north of the frame..after having buttons over it from the left tp the right end of the no further buttons added are being displayed on the JToolBAr.
i want if they are not coming in one line then they must come on the next line..which is not happening
my question is how to make the size of the JToolBar increase so that the icons in it come on the next line as we usually observe for instance in Microsoft Word...plz help me out to solve my problem..

As far as the JToolBar goes...What you are seeing in MS Word is actually 2 Toolbars. So that's what would be the easiest to do is create a second JToolBar.
Now, about the Scrolling JTabbedPane, here is how I do it
JTabbedPane tab = new JTabbedPane(JTabbedPane.TOP, JTabbedPane.SCROLL_TAB_LAYOUT);
You don't need to set the INT value of SCROLL_TAB_LAYOUT.
Hope that helps a little.
