I have a parent JFrame it contain a JButton. functionality of that button is to open another JFrame.

I want to restrict the focus of JFrame, means after closing the second JFrame focus should come into first JFrame(parent).
And focus should not come to first JFrameif second JFrame is open.

it is something like when you click on eclipse for create new project that time a window appear but without closing that small window
you can not perform action in the eclipse main window.

Hi Kumard,

It sounds like you want to use a modal window. Take a look at the JOptionPane class, it can create and display dialog windows for you.
 
Consider Paul's rocket mass heater.
