Alright, right now I feel completely dumb...all I want to do is create a MenuBar, which I've done, with a ActionListener attached to one of the menu items: a quit button. The actionEvent will be the closing of the JFrame, as I'm sure you've guessed.

After looking through all the API source files for JFrame's methods and inherited methods, I still can't find a method that will just close the window!!

Someone please kick me!

System.exit(...) will do it

dispose() if you want to get rid of the JFrame but keep the application alive. System.exit(0) if you want to exit the application loop altogether.

Just thought I would clarify the given solutions a bit.

Dispose() - Destroys the JFrame completely, frees the resources.

System.exit(int) - Closes the entire program

JFrame.setVisible(false) - Makes the JFrame invisible, make it reappear with a setVisible(true)
