    Default make object and add components

    Adding lots of JFrame components would be tidious so i wish if there is some way to create a way to add all the JFrame components at once.
    lbl_info = new JLabel("Values with an astrick(*) are necessary");
    		lbl_propertyNo = new JLabel("Property Numner: ");
    		lbl_propertyName = new JLabel("* Property Name: ");
    		lbl_purchasePrice = new JLabel("Purchase Price: ");
    		lbl_rent = new JLabel("Rental charges (per month)");
    		lbl_occRate =  new JLabel("Expected Occupancy Rate: ");
    		lbl_mgmtFees = new JLabel("Property management fees (per month): ");
    		lbl_insurance = new JLabel("Annual Cost of Insurance: ");
    		lbl_maintenanceCost = new JLabel("Annual Maintenance Cost");
     
    		txt_propertyName = new JTextField("* Property Name: ");
    		txt_purchasePrice = new JTextField("Purchase Price: ");
    		txt_rent = new JTextField("Rental charges (per month)");
    		txt_occRate =  new JTextField("Expected Occupancy Rate: ");
    		txt_mgmtFees = new JTextField("Property management fees (per month): ");
    		txt_insurance = new JTextField("Annual Cost of Insurance: ");
    		txt_maintenanceCost = new JTextField("Annual Maintenance Cost");

    Sometimes writing proper code can be tedious to those who don't enjoy it and find satisfaction in doing it properly.

    However, arrays of components can be added using loops when the naming of the components allows, it makes sense to do so, and the code is still easily read and understood.

    Thanks for the answer but I know how to add components using arrays, that's a simple thing. But you can see the code I have posted here has different names. I want to add these very components to JFrame

    You could also put the names in an array and match them up as you go through the loops, but that's starting to sound like storing the program data in multiple parallel arrays, a practice to be avoided. Instead, create a class of components with the details stored in fields, and then store those in an array which can be added to the container using loops. I don't know that any of those approaches will reduce the typing required, but it's starting to evolve into a more elegant and OOP-aware design.
