did you try and read the API doc of the window (perhaps its JFrame or so) ?
there is probably something like getDimension(), getWidth()/getHeight(), getSize().
and if you find the size... your halfway there :-)

If you're looking for screen size, try...

Dimension d = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize();
