I am not too knowlegable in GUI stuff, but don't you want setVisible(true); ?

It is painting it, but is the frame is not visible. Hope that helps.

As Rusty mentioned you need to make the Frame visible using setVisible(true) not false. Your code won't work though, it's going to paint the rectangles once. As soon as the frame repaints the rectangles will be gone. You need to move your rectangle painting code to paint() method of the frame or to a widget which you add to the frame.
