That is the way java behaves. It is mostly based on layout managers to remove the requirment of manually coding all of your widgets to move properly when the window resizes. You can change that behavior by using null for the layout manager I believe.

Actually, once you get the hang of the various layout managers, coding a gui by hand isnt really that time consuming at all.
