I wanted to create Panel which will acts like a button.

In panel i ll use labels and textbox, and whole panel should have property of button.

Or in Button, it is possible to put labels and text area

Yes, it is possible to add a text box to a button. Or you can use extends. Or you can have a button occupying the whole of a panel, and set the button to be transparent.

But all those suggestions appear bad design to me; a button is a button, not a text box, and a panel is a panel, not a button.

JComponent extends Container, so all JComponent subclasses including JButton can be used (or abused) as a container.
