i used Netbean 5.5 Beta 2 to create the JDialog...and i copy out the coding and execute in cmd.

why the parent set in the constructor is java.awt.Frame ?

and it also give me the error saying package org.jdesktop.layout does not exist...

how to solve it?

JDialog has a Frame argument in the constructor because usually a dialog is launched from another 'application' frame. There are also other constructors, some that take Dialogs, some that take no parameters.

org.jdesktop.layout is a package that contains classes the GUI designer in Netbeans uses to layout components in your GUI - to have the produced GUI run on the command line, you'll need to find the JAR file containing the needed classes and include it in your classpath.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
