My JFrame has a BorderLayout.
I am placing a JTabbedPane at the North.
I want that when the user selects a Tab (from JTabbedPane) , the components of JTabbedPane should be displayed in the  BorderLayout.LEFT.
How can this be done?

I mean that I want to place the components of a tabbed pane at a particular position in my frame. The components of the JTabbedPane (Components of a Tab of the JTabbedPane) should not be placed by default.

use one or more panels and place things using gridbag layout.
Or you could use a GUI Designer with your ide, I prefer this one http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/index.html

Can't be done directly.

You could try using empty panels in your tabbed pane, and add a ChangeListener to switch the panel displayed in the LEFT (using a CardLayout)

Have a look at the following:

And have your ChangeListener do the panel switching accoring to which tab is selected.
