I have a panel that displays a lot of information and is setup the way that I want it to look. I'm trying to get a window/JFrame to appear after a user clicks a button on the GUI already open. I want that new window to have the panel inside of it.

Should I be using JOptionPane.showOptionDialog or should I be using javax.swing.Popup? Could someone show a simple example of using javax.swing.Popup in action? Please :-)

Question is far too vague, but I would guess you should use a JDialog.

Well I guess just an example of how one would make a JFrame appear as a Popup using javax.swing.Popup?

JPanel panel = new JPanel(); //contains my whole setup
JFrame frame = new JFrame();
frame.add(panel, BORDERLAYOUT.CENTER);
Popup popUp = new Popup();
popUp(frame,panel,100,100) ???
popUp.show();

...

I don't know how to use the Popup class. Can someone show me how I would use it with the code above?

Checkout PopupFactory API docs.
Also check out JPopupMenu.
You have already been suggested the JOptionPane.showXXXDialog
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
