I am learning to create the program editor which is similar like Netbean. I noticed there are tabs in the panels. The panels could be dragged and moved freely.
The "runtime" could be freely dragged to any area in the left side.
Could anyone kindly tell me what kind of API or component could be used to make tab in panels and dragged freely?
I appreciate if anyone could reply ASAP.
Thanks a lot and have a good day

They're called docking frameworks.
See this thread:
I'm using Infonode's docking framework and I'm fairly happy with it. It has a GPL and commercial license.
You can also build your application using the Netbeans platform.
