I looked into this a while ago. Unfortunatly JTabbedPane doesn't support this and we couldn't find any good ready made components to suit our needs.
In the end we wrote a custom component that listens for mouse clicks on the tab and then waits for the mouse released action to reorder the tabs.

Thanks for replying. I also wrote a custom component to listen to mouse press/drag and release but I couldn't seem to copy/move the content of the tab I'm trying to drag and drop (I made use of TransferHandler). May I know what you used to drag and drop the tab content itself? Thanks in advance.
