Package javax.swing.border

package javax.swing.border
Provides classes and interface for drawing specialized borders around a Swing component. You can subclass these classes to create customized borders for your components instead of using the default borders provided by the look-and-feel being used.

Note: Most of the Swing API is not thread safe. For details, see Concurrency in Swing, a section in The Java Tutorial.

For overviews, tutorials, examples, guides, and tool documentation, please see:
