JFrame application functions well, but still resident on exit. I can do a ps on the process job an all are active processes in memory, which were run. I am doing a show() to display the JFrame and a dispose() on close.
Am I not shutting the app down properly?

You need to use System.exit(). Reason being that there are still threads running.

Try adding the following to the JFrame.

setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);

That's right ;-)

Sorry objects I just got through answering another question (I hope you don't feel I'm treading on your toes here ;-)) where the author had used a WindowAdapter, so I thought I'd post the same line here ;-)
