How do I dynamically resize components according to framesize in a GUI?

I am trying to develop an application that has to create JTables from database queries on the fly. Creating the table is not a problem, but it has been requested that the form be resizable. I have the table set into a JScrollPane. How do I
1). resize the table without resizing the scrollpane?
2). resize the scrollpane to fit the resized frame?

This table shares the form with a lot of other components and I am looking at using either a null layout or a gridbag layout

The best thing to do is to use a layout manager or you'll have to do all resizing calculations yourself. Using a layout manager means it should all happen automatically

I don't think I asked the right question. How do I resize the components in my frame whenever a user resizes the frame itself? Using the gridbag layout, the components stayed centered, but did not resize.

Cool. Thanks Bart_Cr. That helped, I guess I also needed to give the components a weightx and weighty value on the gridbagconstraints.
