hi...
m new in java application development. I m developing a java desktop application. in a MDI JFrame, i have added a jDesktopPane. i made the MDI JFrame to open as window maximized both state. now i want that the JDesktopPane should also proportionally get expended to hold the child jFrames....


So how could i fill the desktop pane in the jFrame.???

You set the JDesktopPane as the JFrame's contentPane().

And you use JInternalFrame for the internal documents, not JFrames.

If you are asking for me to post code so you can copy and paste it, then that isn't going to happen. You can either show me what you have tried that didn't work, explain the troubles you are having with setting the content pane or read up on how to use Swing (such as from the official Swing tutorial here: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/uiswing/index.html).

In other words: I would much rather you learn how to write this code than spoon feed it to you. It might take longer but you will profit from it in the long run.
