you can user the JOptionPanel instead.
It has showMessageDialog() function, shich shows a message dialog, showConfirmDialog funcion and other nice stuff.
You can create your own panel and use it in the JOptionPane Dialog, thus extending its capabilites without having to implement all from the begining.
