Rephrasing it is look like

contentpane.add( BPanel , BorderLayout.CENTER ) ;  // put on the content pane
BPanel.setLayout( new GridLayout( 5, 3, 5, 5  ) );

Why to use GridLayout ? Buttons are arranged for BPanel from BorderLayout
BPanel.setLayout( new GridLayout( 5, 3, 5, 5  ) );

Observation ::
If I comment out Gridlayout  line of code everything on contentpane become scatter

no, content pane uses a border layout.
BPanel by default would use a flow layout

I think by Default layout manager is Border Layout in Java swing

My Question If  BPanel setting itself to Border layout why it is need to set on Grid Layout.
or It is to deal with good interface

 it depends the container. For e.g., JFrame and JDialog uses BorderLayout and JPanel uses FlowLayout.

>>If  BPanel setting itself to Border layout why it is need to set on Grid Layout.

If BPanel is a JPanel, it will use the FlowLayout which lays the component row and wrapps if the size doesn't fit and you won't have control. grid gives you some control to render the component int tabuler format!

Because a BorderLayout wouldn't lay out the buttons in a neat grid
