I have a JFrame opened up from a JApplet. How can I set that JFrame to always be on top of the applet? Do I have to use an Internal frame?

Do you mean in front of the applet, or in front *and* bounded by the applet?

If you wish for it to be bounded, then you will probably need to use an internal frame, yes.

Otherwise, I don't think that you can create a modal JFrame with an 'owner' applet..

In case anybody is interested, I solved this problem by registering a focus listener. When the frame loses focus, the event triggers a moveToFront() method which keeps it at the front. This is a hack I found from another EE post (lost the link, sorry).
