I want to make one application which will be having one main form that should act like MDI form of Visual Basic.
I want to know if I want to open forms(frame / panel) in my application, one container should be there to hold these forms. Like in Visual Basic, MDI form fulfill this requirement.
I dont want to use JTabbedpane.
Instead of JTabbedpane, what kind of design should I use.
Please tell me it's an urgent.

You would use JDesktopPane as the "container" and JInternalFrames for each "form".
