What do you mean by don’t see the scroll pane? Do you see the List? Is the List larger or smaller than the scroll pane was expected to be? What happens if you resize your frame smaller?

You have set the layout for the jpAcc to null.
Change it to BorderLayout

You are adding the list twice. You don't need jpAcc.add(checkBoxesJList);

No. You have to drop the null layout/bounds and start using proper layout managers. More about them here http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/uiswing/layout/visual.html

The scroll will show up, when the available visual space is less than the required display space.
