creating JFrame and adding components

With the code below, how can I implement a user interface that has a button asking to choose a file.  Once chosen, I want to display the path including the selected file.  Then, I would like to add another button, that when pressed, will call convert.startConversion().  Once this is done, I'd like to have another button that will open the directory where the newly "converted" file is located at (which should be on the same directory original file is at).

But initially, I need help creating the jframe and adding the appropriate components to it.

The code below is working.
import javax.swing.JFileChooser;
import java.io.File;
public class converter {
	public static void main(String[] argv) throws Exception{
	    JFileChooser chooser = new JFileChooser();
	    File f = new File(new File("filename.txt").getCanonicalPath());
	    File curFile = chooser.getSelectedFile();
	    String filename = curFile.getName();
	    converter convert = new converter(filename);

Open in new window

Thanks itzy,

But how can I incorporate my current code to add the components I mentioned earlier?

Best Regards
