Dialog Box is indeed a pop-up window.
Quote from Bruce Eckel's Thinking in Java:
"A Dialog Box is a window which pops out of another window. Its purpose is to deal with some specific issues without cluttering the original window with those details."
Hope it clears ur doubt
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
