Components won't resize width automatically

I'm beginning to learn how to make applets and I'm having a lot of trouble. The components here display fine, but when the window is resized, the width of the components doesn't resize, and neither does the height of the JTextArea, although the height of the JList does. Additionally, when I make the window really small, the JTextArea covers up the JComboBox, although the JList doesn't do that to the JTextField or the JButton. Any advice? I'm a complete novice at this.

With applets you should assume that the GUI does not resize (it certainly does not if it's embedded in a web page). If you want something resizable then the applet should open a new JFrame.
