Why would you want to select a button programmatically? Have you been through the Java™ Tutorials? This section might help.

I think that requestFocus or requestFocusInWindow should do the trick. You may have to use EventQueue.invokeLater to call this, even if you call it from the EDT itself, because I think a delayed event will be necessary.
