I have created a desktop application using IDE it displays the contents of the database table. Till there its ok i can understand, now i want to add extra functionality to the same application like at first it should ask for login name and password then in the next dialog with few buttons like add, remove e.t.c. then as usual the buttons will have an action listener assigned. But i want all this windows to open in a single one just like an installer where we can go back to previous window on clicking back button so how to do this all, i need clear and little help to make my application as i have desired.Please help me.

Sounds like you want to implement a kind of wizard style GUI, in which case this article might help you out.

I'm not 100% clear on what you are trying to achieve, and this possibly may be a language thing, and if so, I'm sorry, but it almost sounds as if you want your application to switch back and forth between different screens. If my guess is correct, then the CardLayout may help you. If I'm wrong, and no other suggestions here are helpful, then you may want to provide more information here on the specifics of your problem. Either way, good luck.
