JFrame dont like to be 640 x 480

I am creating a JFrame at runtime and this JFrame is running a little game I made in java. The problem is that the JFrame is never the exact size you would like him to stay. Where is missing about 30 and about 15 points below the right or the window ever gets smaller. Already tried everything with setSize, setPreferredSize, null layout etc but nothing works ... Any idea?


Java is the best (I love C too) heehhh

use the frame only as the container.

your game should be in a JPanel with a preferredSize of 640,480
add the panel to the frame, then call
frame.pack();

Never use null Layout.

Try to show us some of your code, so that we can tell where the problem is.
