    Default displaying multiple jpanels in a jframe

    hi, is it possible to display another jpanel in the frame instead of opening a new frame each time?

    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
    JFrame aFrame = new JFrame();
    Container contentPane = aFrame.getContentPane();
    JButton s = (JButton)e.getSource();
    if(s == attack)
    contentPane.add(new Attack());
    else if(s == defense)
    contentPane.add(new Defense());
