Split a frame

Hi all,
I'm new to this Java GUI field and was wondering as to how to split a frame for an application like Chat, where I need to separate out the incoming and outgoing texts in two separate areas using only AWT.
I accomplished it using JSplitPane but my project specification is not to use Swing at all.
Any help is highly appreciated.

Have 2 panels, InComongPanel and OutGoingPanel on your frame. Add each of the components (such as textareas, buttons etc.) to the corresponding panel and add those panels to the Frame.

Thanks Vijay. I will try that.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
