How to creating an Alert Dialog window?

I want to create a window to pop up that tells a user an error has occured that looks like the ones that normally pop up in Windows (centered on screen, with an icon, single or up to 3 buttons such as "OK", "Cancel", "Yes", "No").
Is there a class that does this? Matching a windows Alert Dialog Box exactly is not required, but would be preferred.

Javax Swing has an JOptionPane class that has a .showConfirmDialog method that has the Yes/No/Cancel options you mentioned.

If you just have a look at the class JOptionPane in javax(java swing) classes, you will find the all kind of dialogs you need.
Just explore this class in JDK documentation.
