    you can use setLocation(int,int) method to change location of your application frame. If you can show the program then may be i can show you how to use it.

    Actually, the best way to center your form on the desktop is to use the java.awt.Toolkit API.

    For example:

            Dimension d = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize();
            int left = (d.width - this.getWidth()) / 2;
            int top = (d.height - this.getHeight()) / 2;
            this.setLocation(left, top);

    This code will center your window on the desktop regardless of the screen resolution being run on the client end.
