Unable to retain focus

I have a Jbutton in JApplet which I have defined as the default button in the init() method itself. When a popup screen comes above it loses the focus and when the popup is closed the Jbutton is not able to get the focus back eventhough in the dispose event of popup I have used requestfocus()/grabfocus() to get the focus back to the original JButton.
All suggestions are welcome

Try code similar to this:
