Predefined Focus Traversal Policies : Focus « Swing Event « Java Tutorial

ContainerOrderFocusTraversalPolicyThe components are traversed in the order they are added to their container.
DefaultFocusTraversalPolicyThe default policy for AWT programs,
InternalFrameFocusTraversalPolicySpecial policy for JInternalFrame
SortingFocusTraversalPolicyyour Comparator to the policy constructor to define the focus cycle order.
LayoutFocusTraversalPolicyThe default policy for Swing programs, this takes into account geometric settings of components (height, width, position), and then goes top down, left to right to determine navigation order. The top-down, left-right order is determined by the current ComponentOrientation setting for your locale. For instance, Hebrew would be in right-left order instead.
