// MenuFrame.java to create menus
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import javax.swing.event.*;
public class MenuFrame extends JMenuBar
{
public JMenu menu;
public JMenuItem menu1, menu2,menu3,menu4;
public JMenuBar menuBar;
public MenuFrame()
{
menuBar = new JMenuBar();
menu=new JMenu ("All Frames");
menu.setMnemonic(KeyEvent.VK_T);
menuBar.add(menu);
menu1= new JMenuItem("CD Frame");
menu2=new JMenuItem("Customer Frame");
menu3= new JMenuItem("Transaction Frame");
menu4=new JMenuItem("Exit");

menu.add(menu1);
menu.addSeparator();
menu.add(menu2);
menu.addSeparator();
menu.add(menu3);
menu.addSeparator();
menu.add(menu4);
}
}
//VcFrame.java to create frame which contains menu and just one button

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import javax.swing.event.*;
public class VcFrame extends JFrame implements ActionListener
{
protected JButton button;
public VcFrame()
{
button=new JButton("Hello World");
Container contentPane=getContentPane();
contentPane.add(button);
setJMenuBar(new MenuFrame());
setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
}
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{
}
public static void main(String[] args)
{
JFrame f= new VcFrame();
f.setSize(200,200);
f.setLocation(200,200);
f.setVisible(true);
}
}

In MenuFrame
change:
menuBar.add(menu);

to:
add(menu);
Remove the menuBar variable totally. The class is a JMenuBar so you don't need that variable.
