    I am using netbeans too, and I am a begginer here. In netbeans by default JPanel, JFrames etc uses "Free Design" layout. Free Design Layouts is a sample of GroupLayout manager, at runtime when window is resized or something components inside it will REARRANGE.

    You can change layout manager that JPanel or JFrame is using.

    At Design time
    * Click the component you want to change > Right click > Set Layout > choose the layout manager you want to use.


    At Code
    see the java site's tutorial Lesson: Laying Out Components Within a Container (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing)
