Height of a component will usually decided by the LayoutManager - you can set a preferredSize, but this will be used only as an hint by the layout managers...
Why do you need to set the height? have you added the text pane to a JScrollPane - this will allow the user to enter as much text and scrollbar will appear automatically if the text exceeds the visible height.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
