JBuilder Generated Code? Easy

I am having problems getting Jbuilder 6 to display my project.  My project appears to run and generates no errors but displays nothing or at least displays it so fast I can't see it.  I have not used JBuilder or Java since version 3 so I am very rusty but if I can get started I will remember.  Here is the Borland generated Code.

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import com.borland.jbcl.layout.*;
import java.awt.*;
//import java.swing.text.*;

public class Bob {
  JPanel jPanel1 = new JPanel();
  XYLayout xYLayout1 = new XYLayout();
  JButton jButton1 = new JButton();
  JTextField jTextField1 = new JTextField();
  JButton jButton2 = new JButton();

  public Bob() {
    try {

    catch(Exception e) {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    Bob bob1 = new Bob();
  private void jbInit() throws Exception {
    jPanel1.add(jButton1, new XYConstraints(242, 236, -1, -1));
    jPanel1.add(jTextField1,  new XYConstraints(34, 43, 121, 24));
    jPanel1.add(jButton2,  new XYConstraints(169, 43, 84, 25));


I tried using none borland layout managers with no luck.
I have changed none of the computer generated code and I have not added any of my own code yet.  I just want it to display the panel and a few buttons to make sure it works.

Thank You

Try to add a few lines to constructor or jbInit code:
JFrame frame = new Frame("Frame Title");

Hey thanks,  It took a while for my brain to start working again.  It appears JBuilder 6 sets neither the SetVisable or the SetSize.  And the JFrame cannot be added as a component in the newer version it must explicitly be a class of type JFrame not added to a class.  Which is actually more reasonable now that I think about it.  It's comming back to me.  Thanks

Sorry it to so long to get back to you.  I have been unable to log on to Experts-Exchange.  I think the site was down for a day or so.
