Yes you create an instance of Calculator and call it's launchFrame method. BTW why is your first program Swing based and the second AWT, it's generally not a good idea to mix the two together.
Another thing is I'd rewrite the Calculator class so that it extends JPanel and doesn't create a frame in the constructor. Then whoever constructs the class has the choice of whether to display the Calculator in a frame, a dialog or embed it in their own GUI.
