How can we add different font style items to JList in Java?

AWTJavaObject Oriented ProgrammingProgrammingSwing

A JList is a subclass of JComponent class and it can be used to display a list of objects that allows the user to select one or more items. A JList can generate a ListSelectiionListener interface and need to implement the abstract method valueChanged(). A DefaultListModel class provides a simple implementation of a list model, which can be used to manage items displayed by a JList control. We can add the items to a JList using the addElement() method of the DefaultListModel class, we can also add items with different fonts to JList using HTML tags like <b> for bold style text,  <i> for italic style text, <u> for underlined style text etc. 

Example

import java.awt.*;
import javax.swing.*;
public class JLabelListTest {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
         @Override
         public void run() {
            new JLabelListTest().makeUI();
         }
      });
   }
   public void makeUI() {
      String[] data = {"<html>Raja</html>", "<html><b>Adithya</b></html>", "<html><i>Jaidev</i> </html>", "<html><u>Chaitanya</u></html>"};
      JList list = new JList(data);
      list.setBackground(Color.lightGray);
      JFrame frame = new JFrame();
      frame.getContentPane().add(new JScrollPane(list), BorderLayout.NORTH);
      frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
      frame.setSize(400, 300);
      frame.setLocationRelativeTo(null);
      frame.setVisible(true);
   }
}

Output
