How can I add three rows of text to a JLabel();. what I have done so far is to add the each row of text to a JLabel object,add the label objects to a pane with a "GridLayout(0,1)". I tried a BoxLayout but the gaps between the rows was much .

Please is there a better way of doing this.

I am using the setText() method of the JLabel object. Can your solution factor into this.
