Getting data from one frame into another

I am having a frame say frame1 which is having a button and textfield.
On clicking a button which is on that frame1 I am displaying a frame say
frame2. Inside that frame2 I am having a text field and a button.
What I want is that when I will click on button of frame2
whatever there in the textfield of frame2 should get displayed in textfield
which is inside frame1.

With anticipatory thanks

pass your first frame refrence to ur second frame and create a get/set
methods in ur first frame,call these on action listener of second frame


int count = container.getComponentCount();//frame1 component count
for (int q = 0; q < count; q++) {
if (container.getComponent(q)instanceof JTextField) {
String text= ((JTextField) container.getComponent(q)).getText;

set this text to frame 2 text field
