JSplitPane & window resizing

I have two panels say leftPanel and rightPanel. A JSplitPane splits them by using JSplitPane.HORIZONTAL_SPLIT. I added ScollPanes to both the left panel & right panel. When I minimize the window before resizing the split pane, the left panel shrinks to a tiny vertical bar. But any window resizing after a splitpane resize doesnot make any othe panes shrink.
What might be the possible reason for this behaviour and how to recover this??

I got it.. I set the minimum sizes of components on both sides after adding the components to the split pane.
