I would like to create a JList that fills a window (with vertical and horizontal scroll bars if necessary) and have that JList expand or contract if the window is resized. How can I do that?

You need to embed the JList in a JScrollPane to have the scroll bars (several policies are
available, check the doc. for that). To have it fill the entire area, you can use the GridLayout
layout manager. Here is an example:

import com.sun.java.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;


public class Test extends JFrame {

    public Test() {
        String[] data = {"oneaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa", "two", "free", "four", "one", "two", "free", "four"};
        JList dataList = new JList(data);
        JScrollPane scroll = new JScrollPane(dataList);

        Container c = getContentPane();
        c.setLayout(new GridLayout());
        c.add(scroll);
    }

    public static void main(String args[]) {
        Test t = new Test();
        t.pack();
        t.show();
        return;
    }
   
}
