Problem with scrollbars in JList

I have a JTabbedPane which contains three JPanes. One of the JPanes contains another JPane and there's a JList. I created the JScrollPane for the list like this:

The vertical scrollbar should be always visible but it's not even if there's too much stuff in the list. None of the scrollbars are shown.
I also tried to set the viewport of the scrollpane manually but it didn't work either:

The layout of the JPane (which contains the JList and the JScrollPane) is set to null, I placed the components with setBounds() method. Selection model of the JList is set to ListSelectionModel.SINGLE_SELECTION.
Any suggestions?

When the layout is null , u need to set the Bounds for ScrollPane , no need for List ,
can u post the whole code ,becoz the form in which u have initialised the ScrollPane is correct
