You don't. There isn't actually a resize() method in JPanel, but there is in Component, but it is deprecated. Read the details in the API.

If you do alter the size of a Component, you may have to call validate() and pack() on its enclosing Container as well.

It doesn't guarantee the panel will get that size at all. It's all up to the layout manager of the enclosing container.

pack() is only part of Window and its subclasses, as well as JInternalFrame and JPopupMenu.
