I hava an JPanel with a JLabel in it. Is there a possibility to make the distance from the left and right sight bigger??

Now I find my text almost in the JPanel. And I do not want to make a extra space in my text

Could you post your code?
What layout manager are you using in the JLabel?
If you have not specified one the default is FlowLayout with left justification. Try this,

panel1.setLayout( new FlowLayout( FlowLayout.CENTER ) );

This will center your label inside the panel, along with any other components inside the panel.

Sidenote: "What layout manager are you using in the JLabel?" should have read: What layout manager are you using in the JPanel?

Due to the lack of feedback I think I should get the points.
