The etched border gives an ‘etched’ look. Let’s say the following is our component −

JLabel label;
label = new JLabel("This has etched border with an 'etched' look!");

Let us create an etched border with BorderFactory class −

label.setBorder(BorderFactory.createEtchedBorder());

The following is an example to create etched border for a component using BorderFactory class −

Example

package my;
import javax.swing.BorderFactory;
import java.awt.Font;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JLabel;
public class SwingDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
      JFrame frame = new JFrame("Demo");
      JLabel label;
      label = new JLabel("This has etched border with an 'etched' look!");
      label.setFont(new Font("Arial", Font.BOLD, 18));
      label.setVerticalAlignment(JLabel.CENTER);
      label.setBorder(BorderFactory.createEtchedBorder());
      frame.add(label);
      frame.setSize(550,350);
      frame.setVisible(true);
   }
}
