    Default Mutiple JFrames Problems

    I am writing a program that asks the user for a user name and password. When the correct user name and password is entered a new windows appears. Currently all i do is set the first JFrame visible to false and the new one to true in a separate class[note both classes inherits JFrame]. However, i want to know if instead of making the second class inherit JFrame, if i could just let it inherit the first and what would i need to do to make it look like a new window.

    Do you want to have two windows?
    If you create a class that extends JFrame and that class adds some components and calls setVisible you will have a window displayed.

    If the second class extends the first one and the first one extends JFrame, then you can create a window with it as above.

    What are the "effects" you are looking for with only one window?

    Do you mean you want to remove the currently displayed components in the window and replace them with a new set?

    As the state of your program changes, you should be able to change the components by removing them and adding others.

    You should use CardLayout to store individual screens as game cards, then show one card at a time.

    immutable objects
