You can setDefaultCloseOperation(JInternalFrame.DO_NOTHING_ON_CLOSE ) to stop users from closing JInternalFrame. Your program need to handle that.

I'm not so stupid. I've alredy tried this but didn't work. I have also tried to override the following methods: processKeyEvent, processComponentKeyEvent.

I'm sorry I didn't check that. I tried to add KeyListener to the JInternalFrame.getContentPane() and consume the event when the user press Ctrl+F4 and it works.
Sorry for the last comment.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I can post it here. I compiled the files with JDK1.4 (beta).

import javax.swing.JInternalFrame;
import javax.swing.JDesktopPane;
import javax.swing.JMenu;
import javax.swing.JMenuItem;
import javax.swing.JMenuBar;
import javax.swing.JFrame;

import java.awt.event.*;
import java.awt.*;

public class InternalFrameDemo extends JFrame {
    JDesktopPane desktop;

    public InternalFrameDemo() {
        super("InternalFrameDemo");
        //Set up the GUI.
        desktop = new JDesktopPane(); //a specialized layered pane
        createFrame(); //Create first window
        setContentPane(desktop);          
    }

    protected void createFrame() {
        MyInternalFrame frame = new MyInternalFrame();
          frame.setVisible(true); //necessary as of kestrel
        desktop.add(frame);
         
          frame.getContentPane().addKeyListener(new KeyAdapter()
          {
               public void keyPressed(KeyEvent e)
               {
                    if (e.getKeyCode() == e.VK_F4 && (e.getModifiers() & e.CTRL_DOWN_MASK) != 0)
                    {
                         System.out.println("Consumed a keyPressed");
                         e.consume();
                    }
               }
               public void keyReleased(KeyEvent e)
               {
                    if (e.getKeyCode() == e.VK_F4 && (e.getModifiers() & e.CTRL_DOWN_MASK) != 0)
                    {
                         System.out.println("Consumed a keyReleased");
                         e.consume();
                    }
               }
               public void keyTyped(KeyEvent e)
               {
                    if (e.getKeyCode() == e.VK_F4 && (e.getModifiers() & e.CTRL_DOWN_MASK) != 0)
                    {
                         System.out.println("Consumed a keyTyped");
                         e.consume();
                    }
               }    
          });
         
    }

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        InternalFrameDemo frame = new InternalFrameDemo();
        frame.setVisible(true);
    }
}


class MyInternalFrame extends JInternalFrame{
    public MyInternalFrame() {
        super("Internal Frame", true,true,true,true);
        setSize(300,300);
          setDefaultCloseOperation(JInternalFrame.DO_NOTHING_ON_CLOSE);
    }
}

Your code is OK but your JInternalFrame is empty.Please add a common JButton on contentpane and you'll see that the listeners will not responding. Replace your MyInternalFrame class with the following class:

class MyInternalFrame extends JInternalFrame{
   public MyInternalFrame() {
       super("Internal Frame", true,true,true,true);
       getContentPane().add(new JButton("Wrong"));
       setSize(300,300);
         setDefaultCloseOperation(JInternalFrame.DO_NOTHING_ON_CLOSE);
   }
}

Note: My internal frame window containes more containers and I don't wish to add a key listener to each of them.

It seems to be a bug and it is fixed in JDK1.4.
