Then you will have not a JInternalFrame.

use JWindow
at the same way as JInternalframe
JWindow are normally used as splashscreens.
JWindow myWind = new JWindow();
myWind.add(toolbar);

        myWind.setVisible(false); or show()

Yep, the problem with JWindow is that it cannot be moved or added to a JDesktopPane.

Yes, this was quite obvouis if you remove the titlebar.
Then you have to implement moving / resize code in another manner. JDesktopPane is not used. The user are using XComponent and JToolbar in his/her description.

Jim CakalicSenior Developer/ArchitectCommented:
You can add a JToolBar to a JInternalFrame the same way that you would add it to a JFrame. In both cases, you create a JToolBar and add it to the NORTH area of the frame's content pane.

    JInternalFrame frame = new JInternalFrame();
    JToolBar toolBar = new JToolBar();
    // customize the toolBar
    frame.getContentPane().add(toolBar, BorderLayout.NORTH);

Removing the titlebar from a JInternalFrame is a little trickier. For this you need to get the UI delegate of the frame and set the Component displayed in it's north pane to null. Don't worry, this 'north' pane is different than the 'north' area of the content pane.

    ((javax.swing.plaf.basic.BasicInternalFrameUI)frame.getUI()).setNorthPane(null);

Here is a complete working example -- albeit not well written. I hacked it together from code in the Java Tutorial. Look at the createFrame method for the bits that specifically address your question.

The sample code was take from these tutorial examples:
    http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/components/example-swing/InternalFrameDemo.java
    http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/components/example-swing/MyInternalFrame.java
    http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/components/example-swing/ToolBarDemo.java

---------- InternalFrameDemo.java ----------
import javax.swing.*;
import javax.swing.plaf.basic.BasicInternalFrameUI;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.awt.*;

public class InternalFrameDemo extends JFrame {
    JDesktopPane desktop;

    public InternalFrameDemo() {
        super("InternalFrameDemo");

        //Make the big window be indented 50 pixels from each edge
        //of the screen.
        int inset = 50;
        Dimension screenSize = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize();
        setBounds(inset, inset,
            screenSize.width - inset*2,
            screenSize.height-inset*2);

        //Quit this app when the big window closes.
        addWindowListener(new WindowAdapter() {
            public void windowClosing(WindowEvent e) {
                System.exit(0);
            }
        });

        //Set up the GUI.
        desktop = new JDesktopPane(); //a specialized layered pane
        createFrame(); //Create first window
        setContentPane(desktop);
        setJMenuBar(createMenuBar());

        //Make dragging faster:
        desktop.putClientProperty("JDesktopPane.dragMode", "outline");
    }

    protected JMenuBar createMenuBar() {
        JMenuBar menuBar = new JMenuBar();

        JMenu menu = new JMenu("Document");

            }
        });
        menu.add(menuItem);
        menuBar.add(menu);

        return menuBar;

    protected void createFrame() {
        MyInternalFrame frame = new MyInternalFrame();

        // REMOVE THE FRAME'S TITLEBAR
        BasicInternalFrameUI ui = (BasicInternalFrameUI)frame.getUI();
        ui.setNorthPane(null);

        // ADD THE TOOLBAR
        JToolBar tb = new JToolBar();
        addButtons(tb);
        frame.getContentPane().add(tb, BorderLayout.NORTH);

        frame.setVisible(true); //necessary as of kestrel
        desktop.add(frame);
        try {
            frame.setSelected(true);
        } catch (java.beans.PropertyVetoException e) {
        }
    }

   
    protected void addButtons(JToolBar toolBar) {
        JButton button = null;

        //first button
        button = new JButton(new ImageIcon("images/left.gif"));
        button.setToolTipText("This is the left button");
        button.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
            public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
                displayResult("Action for first button");
            }
        });
        toolBar.add(button);

        //second button
        button = new JButton(new ImageIcon("images/middle.gif"));
        button.setToolTipText("This is the middle button");
        button.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
            public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
                displayResult("Action for second button");
            }
        });
        toolBar.add(button);

        //third button
        button = new JButton(new ImageIcon("images/right.gif"));
        button.setToolTipText("This is the right button");
        button.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
            public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
                displayResult("Action for third button");
            }
        });
        toolBar.add(button);
    }

    protected void displayResult(String actionDescription) {
        System.out.println(actionDescription + "\n");
    }


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