If something is not baseline then does that mean it is leading? I am not clear about the difference between baseline and leading. I don't see any difference in the output between Baseline(Code 1) and Leading(Code 2) except for difference between the textbox sizes. So what is the difference between Baseline and Leading?

Baseline(Code 1):



Leading(Code 2):

The API docs explain what they do.
See http://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/javax/swing/GroupLayout.Alignment.html#LEADING
