How can you make a JSeparator vertical instead of horizontal? I want to use
one to separate areas on a JPanel. Is there a better way to do this?

you can either use:
JSeparator js = new JSeparator(SwingConstants.VERTICAL);
Or, say you've already created a JSeparator called js without specifying it in the constructor, you can use:
The opposite value, is, as you might guess, SwingConstants.HORIZONTAL
I haven't used this myself, just seen it in the docs.
Hope this helps!

depending entirely on what you're trying to do,
perhaps giving the panels a border might be an alternative

As others have said, without knowing what you're trying to do, this may not be appropriate, but sounds to me like you want a split pane. Take a look at what JSplitPane does - it may be just what you're looking for - or not
I agree. Here's the link:
