well there are two way you can go, with internal frames, or with each frame being individualy their own. as far as my experience goes, internal frames seem to do the job, but they do have some bugs that you might have to work around depending on how complex they are. on the other hand, single frames are good, but you may have to work on developing a very strong messaging model so that you have a reference the window that you might want displayed after the current one; possibly a lot of singleton pattern use (maybe). try to experiment with both of them and see what you find easy and flexible for what you need done.
