    Trail: Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing (The Java™ Tutorials)

    A Frame is a top-level window with a title and a border. The size of the frame includes any area designated for the border.
    A frame, implemented as an instance of the JFrame class, is a window that has decorations such as a border, a title, and supports button components that close or iconify the window. Applications with a GUI usually include at least one frame. Applets sometimes use frames, as well.
