This should solve it :

JTextArea t1 = new JTextArea("Sample Text . . .");
JPanel p1 = new JPanel();
p1.add(new JScrollPane(t1);

getContentPane().add(p1, BorderLayout.CENTER);

Hope that helps . . .

Add your label to a panel (that you want scrolled). And then add that panel to your scrollpane.

You can also set a null layout and use the setBounds () method to set the location/ size of the labels.

> how do i display the labels one below each as currently the labels are displayed side to side inside the scrollpane

you'll need to change the layout manager.
try a GridLayout

panel2.setLayout(new GridLayout(0, 1));
