    This is the first result for googling "java fullscreen": Lesson: Full-Screen Exclusive Mode API (The Java™ Tutorials > Bonus)

    Alternatively, you could just use the Toolkit.getScreenSize() method, and set your JFrame's size to that. That's the first result for googling things like "java get screen size".
