How I can I determine which frame is the active frame in my JInternalFrame

Your JDesktopPane has a function called getSelectedFrame. That will do it, or return null if nothing is selected.
EDIT: I might've misunderstood what you meant. If you're trying to find an active component inside a JInternalFrame, it's a good idea to just keep a reference to all your component in the JInternalFrame and make a function to determine which is active by using hasFocus, derived from Component. I don't see a way to do it directly from the content pane or the JInternalFrame.
