JWindow : Java Glossary


Like a JFrame, but without borders or menu bar. A generic term for both a JFrame and JDialog. JWindows can accept keystrokes.

You don’t use jWindow.add( child ); you use jWindow.getContentPane().add( child ). This is especially infuriating since the compiler cannot catch the error. Similarly instead of jWindow.setLayout( layoutManager ) you use jWindow.getContentPane().setLayout( layoutManager ).
