Hi. I have a situation where I need to display multiple JFrames. I have an application with a control panel that has the ability to launch another application (via a JButton). The only problem is, the only handle I have to that other application is another JButton, so I end up with something that looks like:



This works, but I run into all sorts of repainting problems. Since SomeOtherApp is so large, it seems to be hogging the Event-Dispatching Thread, and the app never repaints my control panel JFrame correctly. Any thoughts on how to improve this performance?

Thanks,
Jeff

Turns out it's actually a Look and Feel problem that was causing the repainting issues, not a thread problem.
