Wrap Text in a JButton

I have a set of buttons going done the east-side of my GUI. One of them has to contain a text that is much longer then that in the others, so I'm considering wrapping it to prevent that one button from expanding to much. I tried adding the \n-escape sequence, but that doesn't help. Which solution should I use?
