I'd like to reclaim the resources from a splash screen that is programmatically opened and closed in the constructor of the main frame while the components are instantiated for the main frame. Is it appropriate to call .dispose() on the splash frame after the .setVisible(false) method in order to reclaim the resources from this frame or does it lose scope once the constructor is completed allowing the memory to be reclaimed?

Also, how can you prevent a splash screen frame from showing up in the Windows taskbar?

Thanks!
-Chris

Here is a possible solution to your second question.
JDialog does not show in the task bar.
