How to implement draggable tab using Java Swing

How do I implement a draggable tab using Java Swing? Instead of the static JTabbedPane I would like to drag-and-drop a tab to different position to rearrange the tabs.

Hello kartik,

setAcceptor(TabAcceptor a_acceptor) should let the consumer code decide whether to let one tab transfer from one tabbed pane to another. The default acceptor always returns true.

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.datatransfer.*;
import java.awt.dnd.*;
import java.awt.geom.*;
import java.awt.image.*;
import javax.swing.*;

public class DnDTabbedPane extends JTabbedPane {
    public static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
    private static final int LINEWIDTH = 3;
    private static final String NAME = "TabTransferData";
    private final DataFlavor FLAVOR = new DataFlavor(
            DataFlavor.javaJVMLocalObjectMimeType, NAME);
    private static GhostGlassPane s_glassPane = new GhostGlassPane();

    private boolean m_isDrawRect = false;
    private final Rectangle2D m_lineRect = new Rectangle2D.Double();

    private final Color m_lineColor = new Color(0, 100, 255);
    private TabAcceptor m_acceptor = null;

    public DnDTabbedPane() {
        final DragSourceListener dsl = new DragSourceListener() {
            public void dragEnter(DragSourceDragEvent e) {

            public void dragExit(DragSourceEvent e) {
