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.

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.
