Don't know exactly what you mean.

>> How to make up 4 Y axis boxlayouts in a layout to go into a tabbedpane?
You mean one panel/tab of a tabbedpane
So in fact how to make - on a panel - 4 Y-axis box layouts.
Containing what?
In my example each boxlayout contains 3 JLabels; could be whatever:

        jPanel1 = new javax.swing.JPanel();
        jLabel1 = new javax.swing.JLabel();
        jLabel2 = new javax.swing.JLabel();
        jLabel3 = new javax.swing.JLabel();
        jPanel2 = new javax.swing.JPanel();
        jLabel4 = new javax.swing.JLabel();
        jLabel5 = new javax.swing.JLabel();
        jLabel6 = new javax.swing.JLabel();
        jPanel3 = new javax.swing.JPanel();
        jLabel7 = new javax.swing.JLabel();
        jLabel8 = new javax.swing.JLabel();
        jLabel9 = new javax.swing.JLabel();
        jPanel4 = new javax.swing.JPanel();
        jLabel10 = new javax.swing.JLabel();
        jLabel11 = new javax.swing.JLabel();
        jLabel12 = new javax.swing.JLabel();

        setLayout(new java.awt.FlowLayout(java.awt.FlowLayout.LEFT));

        jPanel1.setLayout(new javax.swing.BoxLayout(jPanel1, javax.swing.BoxLayout.Y_AXIS));

        jLabel1.setText("jLabel1");
        jPanel1.add(jLabel1);

        jLabel2.setText("jLabel2");
        jPanel1.add(jLabel2);

        jLabel3.setText("jLabel3");
        jPanel1.add(jLabel3);

        add(jPanel1);

        jPanel2.setLayout(new javax.swing.BoxLayout(jPanel2, javax.swing.BoxLayout.Y_AXIS));

        jLabel4.setText("jLabel4");
        jPanel2.add(jLabel4);

        jLabel5.setText("jLabel5");
        jPanel2.add(jLabel5);

        jLabel6.setText("jLabel6");
        jPanel2.add(jLabel6);

        add(jPanel2);

        jPanel3.setLayout(new javax.swing.BoxLayout(jPanel3, javax.swing.BoxLayout.Y_AXIS));

        jLabel7.setText("jLabel7");
        jPanel3.add(jLabel7);

        jLabel8.setText("jLabel8");
        jPanel3.add(jLabel8);

        jLabel9.setText("jLabel9");
        jPanel3.add(jLabel9);

        add(jPanel3);

        jPanel4.setLayout(new javax.swing.BoxLayout(jPanel4, javax.swing.BoxLayout.Y_AXIS));

        jLabel10.setText("jLabel10");
        jPanel4.add(jLabel10);

        jLabel11.setText("jLabel11");
        jPanel4.add(jLabel11);

        jLabel12.setText("jLabel12");
        jPanel4.add(jLabel12);

        add(jPanel4);

That's OK.
We both do our best: you to formulate, I to interpret.
We can't do more, do we?

Thanks again Christopher
