I have not used swing in a while so im not sure if this the proper behavior.

dialog = new JDialog(this, "ERROR", true);
JOptionPane optionPane = new JOptionPane("The xxxxx name cannot be blank.",

I have a JDialog box which has some mandatory fields and if those fields are not filled this JDialog appears. My problem is that if I click on the X for the message dialog both itself and its parent JDialog are closed. Is this normal? And second I have an ok button in the message jdialog which when clicked on does not respond. I didnt think that I had to implement a listener for this button.

Thank you all for your help

I would think you would want something like:

JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(parentComponent, "you left xxx blank");

Where parentComponent is your other dialog.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
