Border area dimensions might be obtained by method getInsets. Border area is also present in frame’s overall size so frame’s portion is obscured effectively, which constraint the area present to render or display the subcomponents, to that rectangle which consists of location of upper left corner (insets.left,, and width size (insets.left ...
