What I want to do is catch when the user presses the cross button to close the application which is on a JFrame. Or disable this buton when there is some processing going on in some dialog box, So that the program does not end with unexpected results.
Please if anybody knows.

You'll have to add a WindowListener to your JFrame and code this in the windowClosing() method.

. . . or to disable the "x for exit" button on the JFrame use a different Default Close Operation. See the JFrame API.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
