Swing's JApplet can contain a menubar, whilst an Applet can NOT.

JComponents can have borders.

Many Swing components can have embedded pictures, because they're subclasses of Container.

JComponents can have tooltips.

JTextField allows right-aligned entry !

The content-pane's border is used as insets. You can use createEmptyBorder to have insets of the component's own colour.

Arguments are : top, left, bottom, right.

There's a invisible glass pane on top of the content-pane. A separate layer.

This one is only painted, when made visible, but it could also capture mouse events, for instance to drag a picture over the contentpane.

Call JComponent's method first.

NOTES

=========

There are several kinds of borders :
  EtchedBorder
  RaisedBevelBorder
  LoweredBevelBorder

Create methods for these and others can be found in the javax.swing.BorderFactory class.
